Cygnet Health Care has submitted a planning application to Maidstone Borough Council to build an £18 million hospital at the Kent Medical Campus near Junction 7 of the M20, creating 150 jobs.

The new institution will be situated next to the £95 million private KIMS Hospital already on the campus, which is  a 30-acre site being turned into a health and research business centre by investment management company Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL).

The KIMS Hospital was the first phase of the development and was opened by the Duke of Gloucester in 2014. It is home to more than 200 consultants and has 99 patient beds.

The vision by JLL for the Kent Medical Campus is to establish a business park for a range of medical companies to rival research centres in Oxford and Cambridge, while also providing care to the Kent community.

Cygnet Health Care is one of the UK’s leading providers to the NHS of mental health services for patients needing acute and intensive care.

Chief executive David Cole said: “The Kent Medical Campus development would bring significant investment to the area, creating 150 jobs as well as fulfilling an existing and growing demand for mental health services.

“Importantly, we aspire to ensure that service users are able to recover safely and effectively, and this process is made easier by being able to access local services.”

Mr Cole added: “There is a significant shortfall in mental health service provision across the UK, and the proposed hospital at Kent Medical Campus would be a significant step in addressing this for Kent and the South East, ensuring that local people are able to access services as and when they need them.”
