LONDON: Cleveland Clinic is pleased with Westminster City Council’s decision to grant planning permission for the conversion of 33 Grosvenor Place into an advanced healthcare facility.
Since it was founded in 1921, Cleveland Clinic has developed an international reputation for providing integrated, doctor-led care to patients in the United States, and we are pleased to start the development of our first facility in London.
Cleveland Clinic’s plans for 33 Grosvenor Place will include:
- Change the use of the existing building from B1 (Office) to C2 (Residential Institutions including Hospitals) to provide a 205-bed hospital with eight operating theatres.
- Retain the majority of the existing structure and external face of the building.
- Reinstate the building’s original entrances by removing the unsightly and unfriendly ramps and stairs. This will enhance the architectural quality of the building with a sensitive renovation.
Cleveland Clinic remains committed to continuing to listen closely to the views of local residents, planning officers and members of the local authority to ensure that the development and its plans are appropriate to the local area and local community.
Toby Cosgrove, CEO and President of Cleveland Clinic, said, “I am delighted that we have been granted planning approval and can start the development of our first healthcare facility in London. Since 1921 we have established a reputation as one of the most trusted and respected providers of healthcare. We are looking forward to the opportunity to provide our unique model of care to patients in London, one of the world’s great cities.”
