Steward Health Care Malta (SHC) has submitted an outlined development application for St. Luke’s Hospital.

In a statement, SHC insisted that a patient-centric approach was applied in all planning decisions and as a result, the Outline Development Application “will reveal a campus transformed from the current environment into a modern and integrated health campus”.

According to SHC, the development approach was informed by a detailed analysis of the existing site and building conditions and a review of clinical service opportunities to ensure the best possible patient care; all within the context of local Planning Policy.

Commenting on the submission, Dr Nadine Delicata, President of Steward Malta, explained how, “at the broadest level, the redevelopment is centred on a full revival of the St. Luke’s Hospital Building, increasing the quality and accessibility to open space and gardens within the campus grounds, enhancing community cohesion by integrating the main entrance and Pjazza St. Luqa, and establishing a more coherent internal circulation system which provides on-site car parking while strengthening safe access to the public school.”

Having completed and delivered the Barts Medical School in Gozo in November and gone through the rigorous master-planning period at both hospital sites, Steward is now excited to begin unveiling its plans for the wider hospital project over the coming weeks.
