ARUP CASE STUDY

Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals

Opened by Queen Elizabeth II

The Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals is a state-of-the-art healthcare centre that provides world class dental, ear, nose, throat, hearing and balance services for children and adults. The centres, which originally operated on two separate sites, have combined to create one of Europe’s largest specialist centres of its kind.

UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) appointed Arup to deliver mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) design for the new medical centre. In collaboration with patient and hospital teams, Arup has designed a multidisciplinary space which puts patients’ needs at its heart and has achieved cost efficiencies as well as sustainability targets throughout the process.

The new £100m hospital maximises clinical space, while providing light and welcoming areas for patients. It has the capacity to host more than 220,000 appointments each year with facilities including ten procedure rooms for complex surgical treatments, more than 60 clinic and testing rooms, and hearing and balance rooms including specialist medical equipment.
