Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the country's top performing acute trusts and, in 2004, became one of the first ten English NHS foundation trusts. A £300 million health investment plan has seen the transfer of the city's two hospitals to a single site by building a modern, flexible facility more suited to modern healthcare. The full planning application for the redevelopment of the former Edith Cavell Hospital was approved by the council in 2006. Planning permission for the development of an integrated care centre on the site of the former Fenland Wing at Peterborough District Hospital was granted in 2003. The City Care Centre finally opened on 1 July 2009 and the first patients were treated at the new Peterborough City Hospital on 15 November 2010. The private Fitzwilliam Hospital is situated in the landscaped grounds of the Milton Estate.

Famous quotes containing the words service and/or health:
“Service ... is love in action, love made flesh; service is the body, the incarnation of love. Love is the impetus, service the act, and creativity the result with many by-products.”
—Sarah Patton Boyle, U.S. civil rights activist and author. The Desegregated Heart, part 3, ch. 3 (1962)
“Nothing in Natures sober found,
But an eternal health goes round.
Fill up the bowl, then, fill it high,
Fill all the glasses therefor why
Should every creature drink but I?
Why, man of morals, tell me why?”
—Abraham Cowley (16181667)
