New Private Hospital to be built in Swansea
A Swansea based private hospital, HMT Sancta Maria, has announced plans to build a new state of the art hospital scheduled to open its doors in 2017. The Healthcare Management Trust who own and operate HMT Sancta Maria in the city's Uplands area confirmed it has identified a preferred site close to Swansea for the purpose built hospital. They say it will enhance the range of clinical services available and allow Sancta Maria to continue delivering high class healthcare.
HMT, the Hospital Management Trust, was founded in 1985 as a registered charity by a group of people 'who believed that private medicine and care in opposition to the NHS should not be the only way forward'. It is a 'not for profit' independent provider of health care services with two hospitals and three care homes. Moving to brand new, purpose built facilities will ensure the hospital continues to provide a full range of medical services and maintain its position as a leading independent hospital, whilst creating employment opportunities in the region.
Tony Barrett, the chief executive of HMT (Healthcare Management Trust), said: “This ambitious development will ensure that patients across Swansea and west Wales continue to benefit from access to leading clinical services within a facility designed to offer the very best patient experience.”
