The new Health and Wellbeing Centre under construction on the former Tredegar General Hospital site has officially been named- as The Bevan Health & Wellbeing Centre.
The new facility, which is due to be completed in early 2023, will provide a comprehensive range of Primary Care, Community, Social Care and Wellbeing services together in one place for local residents.
Following a public discussion on the official name of the centre, The Bevan Health & Wellbeing Centre was chosen by Ann Lloyd CBE, Chair of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, and Glyn Jones, Interim Chief Executive, from a selection of suggested titles.
Located in the town of Tredegar- the birthplace of Aneurin Bevan- the new facility is being constructed around a restored part of Tredegar General Hospital’s original structure to retain a significant part of the town’s history.
Ann Lloyd CBE, Chair of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, said:
"We received some excellent name suggestions for the new building, but The Bevan Health and Wellbeing Centre seemed the most fitting for a centre built in the hometown of the founder of the NHS.”
Glyn Jones, Interim Chief Executive of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, said:
"It was an honour to be able to choose the name of the centre, and we’re thrilled to see the construction of this fantastic new facility, which will offer excellent health care services closer to residents’ homes."
