Liverpool’s Beatles-themed Hard Days Night Hotel has named the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust’s R Charity as its chosen charity of the year.
R Charity, which is currently fundraising on behalf of Merseyside’s largest hospital, aims to raise £10 million towards the redevelopment of the site.
Senior vice president Operations for Millennium Hotels & Resorts in Europe, Clive Harrington said: “After meeting with the redevelopment staff at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, we were instantly impressed by the plans for the upcoming overhaul of the site and its landmark £335 million redevelopment. The team at the hotel are thrilled to assist the work of R Charity ahead of the new hospital’s opening; their collective efforts will help aid R Charity to provide comfort and the very best care to patients in the hospital.”
R Charity aims to ensure that the redevelopment of the hospital goes beyond even the NHS promise of care by investing in the latest high-technology equipment for diagnosis and treatment, together with offering comforts and conveniences for both patients and families.
The new hospital will be built next to the existing site and will house 646 beds with a 40-bed Critical Care Unit, 18 operating theatres and one of the North West’s largest emergency departments.
