UK-based Simons Group has received a contract to build a new hospital for Circle Health to provide large scale rehabilitation services.

Under the £21.85m contract, the company will build the hospital on the former BBC Pebble Mill site in Edgbaston’s Medical Quarter.

Circle Health CEO Paolo Pieri said: “This state-of-the-art hospital will bring to Birmingham the high-quality care and excellent hospitality for which Circle Health is well-known, and is an important part of Circle’s strategy to add scale to the group.

“The intention is also to add a significant number of beds for physical and neurological rehabilitation, along with the latest rehabilitation technology. We’re pleased to work with Simons Group to make our newest hospital a reality.”

Simons has also signed contracts with Medical Properties Trust as part of the project.

Simons chief executive Tom Robinson was quoted by media sources as saying: “It’s going to be a really exciting project for Simons. The hospital will fill a gap in the UK patient pathway and help to relieve pressure on private and NHS services.

Work on the proposed project is expected to begin later this month, according to media sources.
