Progress at The Grange University Hospital in Cwmbran

Written by on 25th April 2020

The Grange University Hospital will provide a centre of excellence in the centre of Gwent.

The purpose of the new specialist and critical care centre is to treat the sickest patients in the area.

The hospital will have 560 beds (including trolleys and cots) and will also feature a 24-hour Acute Assessment Unit, Emergency Department and Helicopter Pad.

The main contractor, Laing O’Rourke, commenced construction during the summer of 2017. The hospital is due to be completed by the autumn of 2020 and receive the first patients during the spring of 2021. 

The Grange University Hospital will provide a 24/7 emergency admissions service for patients requiring Specialist and Critical Care services and after 10pm each night, admissions from across Gwent and South Powys.

However, minor injuries or illnesses will not be treated at this site and there will be limited outpatient provision as this will be available at Local General Hospitals.

The hospital will be a central resource for Gwent that will provide care for people who are seriously ill or have complex problems or conditions that cannot safely be managed in one of the LGHs.

Parking is often an issue at some Local General Hospitals due to their location and use. The Grange University Hospital has been planned with:

  • 600 car parking spaces for staff
  • 300 spaces for visitors
  • 20 spaces Children’s Assessment Unit

What kinds of conditions will be treated at The Grange?

  • Emergency cases requiring resuscitation  
  • Heart attack

  • Major surgery

  • Emergency surgery & trauma  
  • Children’s inpatient services and surgery
