Royal visit to the RNOH

Posted by Sam Bowie on 22 March 2019

The Duke of York and Princess Eugenie today officially opened the magnificent new Stanmore Building at the RNOH.

The £50 million building, which fuses the latest architectural design and health technology with contemporary art to produce a stunning and unique environment for patients and staff, was partly financed by the RNOH Charity’s Redevelopment Appeal. The official Patron of the Appeal is HRH Princess Eugenie, who in 2002 underwent corrective surgery at the hospital for scoliosis (curvature of the spine).

HRH The Duke of York has been Patron of the RNOH since 2003, and was accompanied on today’s visit by Princess Eugenie.

The Royal Party met with staff and patients during their visit to the new five-storey Stanmore Building, which contains wards and therapy units for 119 inpatients, and replaces many of the old and severely outdated ward units that date back as far as World War 2.
