1.2 What is the vision for the New Princess Alexandra Hospital?

Our new hospital will transform healthcare for the people of Harlow and beyond. It will be a world-class facility delivering first-rate care for our patients and the best working environment for our people.

It will be a community asset to be truly proud of. Our goal is to build an exemplar of contemporary architecture set in acres of therapeutic countryside. A building that is technologically innovative and efficient, fully electric and carbon neutral.

It won’t just be a modern version of our existing hospital building. It will be a new hospital designed for the future: able to swiftly adapt to innovation and change. Capable of providing the best care for generations to come.
