Works progressing on new Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre

Works on the new Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre in Kent have been progressing nicely over the past few weeks, following a ground-breaking ceremony in May.

Designed by LSI Architects, the £13.5M development will be an integrated hub providing much needed treatment facilities including GP services and day care facilities as well as minor procedures, and a range of health, social and community services.

The new health and wellbeing facility will replace facilities at both Edenbridge Medical Practice and Edenbridge Memorial Hospital which are becoming unfit for purpose and unable to support future service models.

COO David Andrews said: “It is always an exciting stage of a construction project when work to make a design a reality begins on site.

The design team worked very closely with a range of stakeholders to understand what they wanted to see from the new Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre.

The resulting design creates a vibrant and welcoming environment that will meet the needs of the local community, with a strong emphasis being placed on wellbeing and lifestyle services, and we look forward to seeing the building begin to take shape over the coming months.”


The Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre has been designed to achieve a rating of ‘Excellent’ in the BRE’s BREEAM sustainability certification and will apply sustainable design principles to minimise energy demand, maximise the health and wellbeing of building occupants, and ensure enhancement and protection of the external environment.

The project previously achieved planning permission in 2020, and is expecting to welcome patients from autumn 2023.
