24 Portland Place, Marylebone

London: Cleveland Clinic London has agreed to lease its first medical outpatient building at 24 Portland Place, which is expected to begin seeing patients in autumn 2020 for outpatient appointments and diagnostics, and general practice appointments.

“This marks a major milestone in Cleveland Clinic London’s development and further demonstrates its commitment to London and the UK healthcare market,” said Brian Donley, M.D., CEO of Cleveland Clinic London. “24 Portland Place will provide outpatient services in advance of our London hospital opening in early 2021.”

The building at 24 Portland Place, owned by The Howard de Walden Estate, is a townhouse in a prime central London location, a short distance from the Cleveland Clinic London Hospital at 33 Grosvenor Place. Cleveland Clinic London has signed an agreement for a 20-year lease of the building which is set over six floors, totaling 28,000 square feet, and is currently used for office space.

Simon Baynham, Executive Property Director at The Howard de Walden Estate, said, “London is uniquely placed as a centre of global medical excellence and Cleveland Clinic London will be a hugely important addition to the medical provision in The Harley Street Medical Area. We are very pleased that such a highly respected, international hospital group has chosen Portland Place for its first outpatient facility.”

The new hospital at 33 Grosvenor Place – an eight-story, 324,000-square-foot building – is currently under construction. The hospital, scheduled to open in early 2021, will provide new jobs and employment opportunities for a variety of clinical and non-clinical employees.

The hospital will be Cleveland Clinic’s first facility in London, adding another international location to a health system that includes a 165-acre main campus near downtown Cleveland, 11 regional hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio, multiple facilities in Florida, a facility in Las Vegas, Nev., and hospitals in Toronto, Canada; and Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Cleveland Clinic London will have 185 inpatient beds; eight operating rooms; a full imaging suite; endoscopy and catheterization labs; day case rooms for surgery; and a full neurological suite with rehabilitation. The facility will offer specialty services focusing on general surgery, cardiology, orthopaedics and neurology.
