East Central hub has reached financial close on its first project – the £4.2million Glenwood Health Centre in Glenwood, Glenrothes.
A sod cutting ceremony was held on Friday 8th March 2013 to mark commencement of site operations, with representatives from East Central hub, NHS Fife, Glenrothes and North East Fife CHP and BAM Construction in attendance.
The new Glenwood Health Centre has been designed to provide enhanced health services which will meet the needs of the local population of approximately 13,000 in a modern, bright purpose built centre. The new facility will enable minor surgery and enhanced clinical services to be delivered locally as well as continuing to provide a range of community services such as health visiting, dietetics, podiatry, physiotherapy and district nursing.
Ian Mullen, Chairman, hub East Central Scotland said: “This £4.2million local health centre is the first project of £500million programme to build sustainable community-based facilities across Fife, Forth Valley and Tayside.
“The long-term nature of the programme will help provide a range of business, employment and training opportunities for local organisations through a structured and measured approach to local community benefits planning. “
