The independent voice of the global moving industry


Quicksilver combines hospitals

Aug 10, 2015
Commercial mover Quicksilver has moved several hospital departments, from three hospitals into one specialist emergency care facility. The entire move was completed on time and on budget.

The brand new £75m Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital in Cramlington opened its doors at 6am Tuesday morning. The new hospital is the first in the country dedicated to providing emergency care with A&E consultants working 24/7 to care for seriously ill or injured patients, and it has absorbed elements from three existing hospitals in Northumberland: Wansbeck General Hospital in Ashington, North Tyneside General Hospital in North Shields, and Hexham General Hospital.

Quicksilver moved many thousands of items from these three sites, including highly-sensitive and extremely expensive pieces of equipment taking over 100 journeys and using a 45-strong team.

Joanne Ball, Business Development Manager said, “It was an exciting challenge, and something of an honour, to work on such a high profile project. A commercial move of this size and complexity doesn’t come along very often. This one had the added element of moving entire hospital departments without disrupting the work of those departments, and the vital care they give to patients.”

David Collard, Managing Director, added: “I’m extremely proud of everyone who worked on the move, and delighted that we played such a key part in the successful opening of this new hospital.”
