LILLEY OPENS PINEHILL HOSPITAL EXTENSION
Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, opened a new extension at the Pinehill Hospital in Hitchin on Friday (March 19th).
He said: “I was delighted to perform the opening ceremony. Pinehill is a well regarded local hospital which provides care and treatment for both private and NHS patients.
“It is an important asset for the community and the new facilities that are now available will enable even more patients to be treated. The latest development includes a third operating theatre and an expanded outpatient department.
“As well as the medical improvements, the extension also creates new job opportunities for professionals and support staff, so it’s making a significant contribution to the Hitchin economy.”
