The Huntingdon NHS Treatment Centre opened its doors to its first patients in 2005. It is a state of the art facility for day case and 23-hour stay surgery. The Treatment Centre now operates 90% of Hinchingbrooke's Outpatient Clinics and nearly all surgery with an expected stay of less than 48 hours is booked into the centre.
The Hospital's £6million Emergency Care Centre, opened in 2006 and benefits from new computer technology, ensuring there is now no backlog in notifying GPs of an attendance in A&E.
The Hinchingbrooke Hospital site is also home to a new £7.4m children's unit, run by Cambridgeshire PCT.
The Trust has undergone a major ward upgrade programme, which has had a major and positive impact on patient experience. Each bay is equipped with ensuite facilities to increase the amount of toilet and wash areas for patients. The modern facilities will aid Hinchingbrooke's excellent record with regard to hospital acquired infections, allowing for the isolation of individual bays and increased hand washing points.
