Our new 11 storey, £500 million Louisa Martindale Building at the Royal Sussex County Hospital will open in June.
The outpatient services going into the new building from the County Hospital will move in first.
Outpatient appointments in the Louisa Martindale Building will begin on Monday 12 June. We have already sent letters to patients with appointments in the new building. Reception staff and volunteers will be on hand to help direct patients when they arrive.
Outpatient appointments will take place in the location shown in the patient’s most recent appointment letter.
We will start moving wards in the second half of June, including the transfer of our Neurology ward from Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath. Patients on the wards and their visitors will be given plenty of notice of the moves and of their new location.
Many of our ward patients will be moving from the 195-year-old Barry Building to the upper floors of the Louisa Martindale Building. We think the difference in the environment will amaze them, we know the sea views definitely will.
The final services to move will be Neuroscience outpatients from Princess Royal Hospital and the step-by-step relocation of ITU into the Louisa Martindale Building.
We will be inviting patients and staff to share their experiences of this wonderful new building as it becomes part of the hospital’s daily life. There will be more news and views from the Louisa Martindale Building over the coming weeks.
