£64million Elective Orthopaedic Centre
The Dame Clare Marx building will be a new £64million state-of-the-art Essex and Suffolk Elective Orthopaedic Centre (ESEOC) for patients who need planned surgery on bones, joints and muscles, such as hip and knee replacements. There will also be fewer cancelled operations and shorter waiting times for patients in pain.
Based at Colchester, but serving all our patients from Suffolk and Essex. The centre is for surgery only – patients will still go to their closest hospital for hospital care before and after the operation. There will be capacity for three wards and eight theatres.
Alongside the EOC plans are works to move the hospital’s day surgery unit and endoscopy unit into larger refurbished spaces.
