Projects: Midland Metropolitan University Hospital

The Midland Metropolitan University Hospital will bring together specialties from all areas of the NHS and provide a hub for emergency care, proudly serving our diverse communities.

Midland Metropolitan University Hospital is currently under construction in Smethwick and will form part of Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust (SWB).

Once open in 2024, it will be a significant acute NHS hospital within Birmingham and the Black Country. Bringing together acute specialties from all areas of the Trust it will provide a hub for emergency care, acute medical wards, maternity, general and specialist surgery to serve more than half a million people.

All acute clinical teams will come together working in an integrated way with community services and primary care to provide seamless care for patients. The hospital will provide clinical teams with modern purpose-built facilities.

The facility aims to be more than a hospital, acting as a catalyst for regeneration of the surrounding areas, improving the life chances and health outcomes of the population.
