Five-star health village for former Papworth Hospital site
A five-star health and wellness village is planned for the former Papworth Hospital site.
The winning bid to acquire the site in Papworth Everard was won by Global Healthcare Real Estate Ltd, it was announced today (Friday, August 9).
Chaired by investor and entrepreneur Grace Bian, the company has bought the land to open a five-star health and wellness village comprising a country club and spa, convalescence and rehabilitation units, villas, and apartments.
A Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson said: “The trust can confirm that the site is being sold to Global Healthcare Real Estate Ltd and we look forward to seeing the plans as they develop.
“We welcome the fact that the historic site is retaining its connections with healthcare through a health and wellness village.”
Ms Bian, chairman of Global Healthcare Real Estate Ltd, said: “We are excited about the future prospects of the site and look forward to working closely with the local community.”
The 13-acre site’s redevelopment follows the world renowned heart and lung hospital’s move to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus earlier this year.
