Chief Executive Professor Tim Orchard said:
“The St Mary’s estate is simply no longer fit to support the modern healthcare our staff, patients and local communities deserve. To continue to play our key role in London’s healthcare system and meet the growing and changing needs of our local communities, a complete rebuild is essential.
“We also want the redevelopment to support further regeneration of the area, including an expansion of the increasingly impactful Paddington Life Sciences - the cluster of businesses and other partners around St Mary’s focused on improving health and healthcare.
“Our vision is for a new, state-of-the-art hospital in a landmark building within a healthy and welcoming neighbourhood. It’s vital that we involve as many patients and local residents as possible – as well as our staff – in shaping and realising this vision.”
