Cleveland Clinic London is attending Arab Health 2020 to provide an update on their state-of-the-art facilities opening soon in London – its first in Europe.

Tommaso Falcone, MD, Chief of Staff, Chief Academic Officer and Medical Director at Cleveland Clinic London, will talk about delivering one of the most technologically advanced private hospitals in the UK, and a new model of care for London.

Ranked in the top two hospitals in the world*, Cleveland Clinic will open its first medical outpatient building at 24 Portland Place, near Harley Street, which is expected to begin seeing patients in November 2020 for outpatient appointments and diagnostics, and general practice appointments.

It marks a major milestone in Cleveland Clinic London’s development and further demonstrates its commitment to London and the UK healthcare market in advance of Cleveland Clinic London Hospital opening in Spring 2021.

The new hospital at 33 Grosvenor Place – an eight-story, 324,000-square-foot building – is currently under construction. The hospital will offer an exceptional quality of care through its doctor-led model, which is unique in London private healthcare. It will also provide new jobs and employment opportunities for a variety of clinical and non-clinical employees.

Tommaso Falcone said: “Cleveland Clinic London will be one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the UK. We will combine the best of Cleveland Clinic in the US with London’s top-quality talent and research, to innovate and provide a doctor-led model of care that will offer exceptional clinical quality and patient safety.”

Cleveland Clinic London will have 185 inpatient beds; eight operating rooms; a full imaging suite; endoscopy and catheterization labs; day case rooms for surgery; and a full neurological suite with rehabilitation. The facility will offer specialty services focusing on general surgery, cardiology, orthopaedics and neurology.

Cleveland Clinic is also prioritising the reduction of the building’s environmental impact once operational. The building will produce its own heat and power, significantly minimising carbon emissions from air and water heating. The cutting-edge of hospital design will create an environment that reflects the needs of patients and the future of healthcare in the UK, while ensuring that the building has minimal environmental impact.

The hospital will be Cleveland Clinic’s first facility in Europe, adding another international location to a health system that includes a 165-acre main campus near downtown Cleveland, 11 regional hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio, multiple facilities in Florida, a facility in Las Vegas, Nev., and hospitals in Toronto, Canada; and Abu Dhabi, UAE.
