Wirral-based private hospital Spire Murrayfield has appointed a new director to drive forward its next phase of development.
Philip Oehley will lead the second phase of the hospital’s improvements programme, which will centre on enhancing patient experience and expanding clinical services.
Due to complete later this year, the hospital revamp will see the development of new patient rooms, expanded consulting room space and refurbished public areas.
Improvements already delivered as part of phase one of the programme include a £850,000 advanced MRI scanner, a new £330,000 day care centre and a refurbished theatre complex.
Mr Oehley, who is originally from South Africa, has spent 10 years working in five-star hotels in his native country and moved into the health sector in 2001. He transferred to the UK in 2009, where he worked in Basingstoke before joining the team at The Alexandra in Manchester, the largest private hospital outside London.
He said: “We are at a very exciting stage in our plans for Spire Murrayfield with major refurbishments ongoing until the end of this year.
“Phase Two will see the look and feel of the hospital continue to develop. We’re also working on improving our business processes, along with expanding the services we offer to patients and bringing in new treatments and clinical equipment.”
