The New South Glasgow Hospital (NSGH) project will result in new state-of-the-art healthcare facilities and high quality design environments and be one of the most advanced medical facilities in Europe. The project being the biggest ever hospital building project undertaken in Scotland and currently the greatest hospital building project in Western Europe, will cost in excess of £840million in total. On completion it will comprise a new acute care hospital in 14-floors with 1.109 beds in single-room accommodation, 5-storey 256-beds children’s hospital and 30 modern operating theatres. In additional to the main hospital, the Laboratory Medicine comprises a 25.000m2 centralized medical laboratories to provide medical laboratory space to support blood sciences, medical genetics, medical pathology, micro-biology, 300 body mortuary and other services for the main hospital.

All bedrooms will be light and airy with large window offering views to the outside world. The bedrooms will provide a therapeutic and healing patient environment that is safe, clean, private, quiet and comfortable.
