The Kent Institute of Medicine and Surgery (KIMS) hospital in Maidstone, Kent is opening its fifth operating theatre after a £250,000 investment.
The private hospital will treat orthopedic patients in the theatre, which will be fitted with new air-flow technology.
The new air flow equipment, supplied by Brandon Medical, will improve ventilation, which is important for broken bone sufferers undergoing surgery because of the increased risk of infection.
KIMS, which is the largest independent hospital in the county, is based on the Kent Medical Campus near Junction 7 of the M20 and opened in 2014.
Chief executive Simon James said: “We have an important role to play in delivering the healthcare services people require and supporting patient choice close to where they live.
“Investing in new technology and opening a new theatre shows out commitment to the people of Kent.
“I’m also delighted that by collaborating with local GPs and consultants we have ensured that our fifth operating theatre is equipped to treat additional orthopedic patients and provide the highest standards of healthcare.”
