Two new emergency adult mental health services to open in the West Midlands in 2024

The development of Cygnet Hospital Oldbury and Cygnet Hospital Wolverhampton

Cygnet Hospital Oldbury and Cygnet Hospital Wolverhampton, our two new purpose built emergency mental health inpatient services in the West Midlands, are both under construction and are due open in mid-2024.

These two new hospitals will offer PICU/acute services for adults, with the female services located at Oldbury and the male services at Wolverhampton.

Both hospitals will have a full multi-disciplinary team (MDT) and will support the acute needs of adults requiring rapid access to mental health services, including those who may need an intensive care environment.

The focus will be on length of stay and making sure individuals move as quickly and safely as possible from our services to the most appropriate and least restrictive environment for them.

Both hospitals will provide safe and comfortable environments to promote successful recovery. Facilities will include, gardens, en-suite bedrooms, therapy rooms, multi-faith rooms, a gym, treatment rooms, communal lounges, dining rooms, quiet lounges, and meeting rooms.

Between them the two new hospitals will bring more than 200 new jobs to the West Midlands with a range of career opportunities that includes health care professionals, clinicians, nurses, catering, domestics and administrative roles.

Lee Hammon, Cygnet’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “2024 is an important year of organic growth for Cygnet. As part of this, we are delighted to be extending our care pathways within the West Midlands region to offer new PICU/acute facilities for adult men and women.

“With the increase in need for specialist mental health services, we want to be part of the solution and work together with our NHS partners to provide the best treatment and facilities to help people on their recovery journey.

“The new hospitals will be purpose-built to meet the latest specifications for improving mental health within a therapeutic environment, and will ensure that people from the West Midlands can receive the treatment and care they need close to family and friends.”
