Staff, Volunteers and Community Celebrated at Whitby Hospital Event

Come along to Whitby Pavillion to celebrate the completion of the £13 million refurbishment at Whitby Community Hospital.

The completion of the £13 million refurbishment at Whitby Community Hospital is being marked with a celebration event at Whitby Pavilion, on Monday 3rd October 2022, 13:00 – 15:00.

Contractors, BAM, have been at the site since March 2020, with the main tower block opening in October 2021.

Plans to redevelop Whitby Hospital were first explored by NHS Property Services and NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby Clinical Commissioning Group (now Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership) in 2014, as part of a wider ‘Fit 4 the Future’ vision. Their aim was to transform community services, to deliver sustainable health and social care for Whitby and the surrounding areas. 

The lead provider at the hospital is currently Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust. Together with their Trust Charity, Health Stars, the organisation has continuously worked with community engagement groups to ensure the hospital is not only fit for purpose, but truly meets the needs of the communities they serve.

This collaborative approach has been widely appreciated by the Trust, who are now hosting an event to celebrate this fantastic milestone.  

Anyone who has been involved with the project is encouraged to join the event on 3 October. There will be time for celebration with tea and cake, an exhibition documenting the hospital’s history, and an official project closing ceremony live from the hospital. Guests will also have a chance to share their own messages of thanks and memories of the project.

The invitation is open to the public, but please note that tickets are limited and must be booked in advance. Tickets will not be available on the door.
