Contract Type Design & Build
The new Broadford Hospital on Skye has opened for use following completion of construction in December 2021. The building opened its doors to the public in February 2022, following commissioning work by NHS Highland. The architects were Oberlanders and Skye-based Rural Design.
The new health facility has 24 inpatient bedrooms, a midwife-led community maternity unit, an emergency department, x-ray and ultrasound facilities, and facilities for physiotherapy, infusions and renal dialysis.
It is located between the current Dr Mackinnon Memorial Hospital and Broadford Health Centre.
The new hospital is part of a £40 million development for NHS Highland, which also includes the new Badenoch and Strathspey Community Hospital in Aviemore, which was completed in September 2021.
