Increased demand for healthcare facilities sees modular building firm make key appointment

Cheshire-based firm, ModuleCo Healthcare (MCH), has appointed a new business development manager in response to rising demand from the NHS for the hire of its modular healthcare facilities.

Richard Henry has joined the company to oversee daily communications between the organisation and its array of healthcare clients, including multiple NHS Trusts across the UK.

He joins the team with more than 30 years of experience working in business strategy and development and will play a key role in supporting MCH’s clients with the supply and maintenance of wards, theatres and other clinical facilities.

Alan Wilson, managing director of MCH said: I’m thrilled to welcome Richard to the team at what is an incredibly busy time for ModuleCo Healthcare. I’m confident we can make a real difference to the healthcare estate within the NHS in the coming weeks and months, and Richard will play a big part in that.

“We are uniquely placed to provide services to NHS Trusts that will allow healthcare professionals to continue delivering their vital work – whether that’s through the supply of new critical buildings or facilitating the transformation of existing ones to meet demand, without affecting capacity.

“COVID-19 means there’s never been a more crucial time to provide assistance to the NHS, who are working tirelessly every day to keep us all safe. Richard’s appointment will allow us to increase our resources and provide more support to hospitals across the country.”

Speaking of his new appointment, Richard said: “Joining the MCH team is a significant career move for me and I’m thrilled to be bringing my skills and experience to a role where I can make a real difference to communities.

“Helping the NHS to operate as efficiently as possible has never been more important than it is right now, so I’m keen to hit the ground running and start delivering healthcare facilities that will benefit NHS professionals, patients and wider society.

“The modular construction marketplace is continually growing and improving, and our products are unique in that we have flexible hire and procurement options to work in line with a hospital’s needs, budget and available space.”

Established in 2002, MCH has worked closely with NHS Trusts across the UK to deliver more than 100 bespoke facilities for hospitals. The company’s flexible rental solutions require no upfront capital, and its modular construction method ensures delivery in a matter of weeks.

Most recently, the firm has delivered an Acute Medical Unit extension for Maidstone Hospital in Kent and a two-storey modular theatre and ward complex for the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham.
