St James University Hospital

This state-of-the-art facility was constructed thanks to a donation for £1.5 million from a private benefactor, who, having recovered from prostate cancer, decided to show his gratitude by financing the construction of this Urology Department, being the first of its kind in Yorkshire.

The Urology Department at St James Hospital has over 18,000 outpatients each year and the new centre brings all the existing services under one roof.

JPG worked closely with the integrated client and NHS team and selected a steel frame with precast concrete floors for the structure, to aid speed of construction and minimise disturbance to the other hospital activities.
