Landmark birthday for Spire Washington

June 8, 2017

Washington Hospital first opened as an independent British hospital in 1988 and became Spire Washington Hospital in 2007.

This year, it celebrates ten years of being part of Spire Healthcare – the country’s second largest private hospital group.

The anniversary marks many achievements for the hospital, including the opening of a new theatre and ward, more than £2 million investment into on-site MRI and CT scanners, as well as a full refurbishment of patient and consulting rooms.

Spire Washington has also introduced bariatric surgery to its services and its endoscopy unit became the first hospital outside of the NHS to be JAG accredited.

The hospital, which now has 35 in-patient beds (23 with en suite facilities), provides high levels of medical treatment and personal care to patients from across the North East and beyond.

This includes a wide range of procedures and treatments, from diagnostic imaging including X-Ray, MRI, CT and Ultrasound, to surgery performed across three theatre suites and an endoscopy unit, including orthopaedic, cosmetic, urology, gynaecology and general surgical procedures. There are ten consultant rooms and two treatment rooms, as well as an on-site pathology lab, physiotherapy suite, pharmacy and wellness centre.

Spire Washington Hospital also boasts a 300-strong team of highly-trained clinical and admin staff, and currently has more than 175 consultants from over 25 different specialities.

Patients’ wellbeing is the overriding priority and services are available to everyone – whether you are covered with private medical insurance or paying for your own treatment, for which the hospital offers one-off private treatments with a fixed price agreed in advance.

Only recently, Spire Healthcare formed a partnership with April UK to create inSpire – an innovative health insurance plan that combines high-quality healthcare with exceptional value for money. Certain specialties can also be accessed via the NHS choose and book system.
