NHS Orkney has selected Robertson Capital Projects as the successful bidder for the construction of the new £60M plus hospital and healthcare facility at the Balfour Hospital in Kirkwall, Orkney Islands.
Robertson Capital Projects will be responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of the purpose-built facility.
According to NHS Orkney, the new facility will contribute to high-quality care, while improving the experience for patients, staff and visitors.
All clinical and educational areas will feature videoconferencing facilities to support more patients benefitting from services being delivered in Orkney and to ensure that the hospital staff can connect with health specialists nationally and training opportunities.
Robertson Capital Projects’ managing director Neil McCormick said: "We are delighted that Robertson has been selected to work with NHS Orkney under a 25-year partnership arrangement to deliver this significant investment. This is the start of a long term relationship.
"Over the coming months we will work together with all stakeholders to finalise the proposals for the design, construction, funding and maintenance of the project with a proposed start on site later this year."
