The "Topping Out" ceremony for the new Treatment Centre took place on Thursday 17th July 2008. Like the "Turf Cutting" ceremony which took place on 10th January 2007 where there was no turf to cut, likewise at the Topping Out, there was nothing to top! Still we visited the site and were shown round the ground and first floors. After a photo shoot we returned to the Managers meeting room. David McVittie CEO gave a brief outline on the project. See Video.

Construction of the Treatment Centre is on schedule. Hand-over is promised for the 5th December 2008 it will open in January 2009

Complete with 4 operating theatres, 14 day case beds, 12 short stay beds, 24 in-patient beds and 2 High Dependency Units. It will be linked to the completely refurbished Princess Christian Unit, making one light and airy new building.The Treatment Centre will take most planned surgery from Hillingdon Hospital and hopes to make a name for itself as an orthopaedic centre of excellence. It will also have a wide range of outpatient clinics, possibly over an extended working day.David McVitie CEO reassured us that at least 88 more parking spaces will be provided, close to the Treatment Centre, on level ground.
Mount Vernon has had some tough years, but at last it is emerging from the shadows, with a bright future ahead. We are lucky to have it on our door-step, located in Hillingdon Borough.
