Construction has begun on the Montagu Elective Orthopaedic Centre (MEOC) at Montagu Hospital in Mexborough in South Yorkshire, England.

The £14.9m project is a joint effort between Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH), Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (BH), and The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT).

It is intended to improve orthopaedic services in South Yorkshire and reduce waiting lists for procedures like hip and knee replacements, foot, and ankle surgeries, and more.

The facility will include two modern theatre units, two anaesthetic rooms, a recovery suite, and 12 inpatient beds.

The project is slated for completion in nearly six months, with the Montagu Elective Orthopaedic Centre expected to receive its first patients in January 2024.

With the region’s waiting list for orthopaedic procedures having increased significantly since March 2020, the new centre aims to provide more timely care and cut waiting times.

It is anticipated that the shared staffing and additional capacity will allow the centre to operate on patients from across the region.

DBTH CEO Richard Parker said: “Today is a historic moment for Rotherham, Barnsley, and Doncaster as it marks the first time our three hospital trusts have come together to collaborate on such a significant project.

“By pooling our resources and expertise, we are setting a precedent for future collaborations, demonstrating our commitment to delivering the highest quality healthcare to our communities.

“The Montagu Elective Orthopaedic Centre represents a transformative milestone in our collective efforts to enhance patient outcomes and experiences and I’m very pleased that we have been able to come together in this way.”
