A supply chain partner has been appointed for the new North Denbighshire Community Hospital project in Rhyl.
Kier has been appointed to manage all aspects of the construction and planning of the £40m development.
The project will introduce a range of new services for residents in Rhyl and the surrounding area. The new hospital, which will be built next to the existing Rhyl Alexandra Hospital, includes inpatient beds, services for treating minor injuries and ailments and a community well-being hub and café.
