South Bristol Hospital Topping-Out

Hospital Topping-Out

Dawn Primarolo tightened the last bolt as the completion of the outside structure of the South Bristol Hospital was celebrated at a traditional ‘topping-out ceremony’ on site at Hengrove Park this morning. 


Contractors at the hospital will spend the coming months completing the interior of the building.  When the hospital opens in Spring 2012, it will offer, amongst many other services, in-patient beds, diagnostic testing and day surgery.

Commenting after the topping-out, Dawn said:

“After so much work, our hospital is really taking shape.  I remember cutting the first turf last Spring and feeling so proud that our community had come together to deliver a hospital that is so needed in Bristol South.  The hospital would not have been possible without the tireless work of the team at NHS Bristol, who have worked with local residents to deliver a facility we can all be proud of.  Now that the structural work is complete, contractors can start work on the inside of the building ahead of next Spring’s long awaited opening.”

South Bristol Hospital is an integral part of the Hengrove Park redevelopment.  The Skills Academy has been open to students since last year, while building work is well underway on a leisure centre for the site.
