The Portland Hospital Opens Paediatric Outpatient Centre at The Shard
18 February 2016
The Portland Hospital for Women and Children is delighted to announce the opening of its new paediatric outpatient centre at The Shard, one of the capital’s most iconic buildings.
HCA Healthcare UK operates services from six privately run hospitals in the capital, including The Portland and now occupies three floors within this iconic building. The Portland has opened this paediatric centre away from the main hospital campus in Great Portland Street to provide families with fast and easy access to world class care at one of the capital’s main transport hubs - London Bridge.
Janene Madden, CEO of The Portland Hospital for Women and Children, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide world class paediatric care in one of Europe’s most recognisable and accessible buildings. Patients will receive the same care and service as if they came to the main hospital.”
HCA Healthcare UK Outpatients and Diagnostics Centre at The Shard is one of the largest of its kind in London and has 78 consulting rooms plus 12 treatment rooms. The entrance to the new centre is on St Thomas Street.
The paediatric outpatient centre offers patients the opportunity to visit The Portland Hospital’s existing consultants and paediatric nursing staff at The Shard as an alternative to the hospital’s main site on Great Portland Street. A range of paediatric specialties are provided at The Shard on an outpatient basis. Follow up treatments and investigations including surgical and medical admissions take place at The Portland Hospital.
In addition to The Portland’s paediatric services, HCA Healthcare UK Outpatients and Diagnostics Centre offers an extensive range of adult outpatient specialties with rapid access to diagnostic imaging services, including x-ray, ultrasound, digital mammography, bone densitometry, CT and MRI scanning. There is also a Women’s Health Centre with a One-Stop Breast Clinic.
The paediatric outpatient department is open from Monday to Friday, from 8.00 to 20.00. If you would like to find out if your consultant offers consultations at The Shard please call: 020 7390 8020 or visit www.hcatheshard.com/paediatrics
