Baddow Hospital

The Hospital was a strategic alliance between consultant clinicians and property developers in Essex resulting in the new development of the Baddow Hospital in Chelmsford.

Horsetiger was retained to assist the clinicians and developers realise their vision and bridge the relationship between the medical requirements and objectives of the clinicians and the commercial realities of an £8m new build development.

Alasdair Muir of Horsetiger was appointed as interim Commercial Director and over two years became integral to the business structure, no rx funding, planning, equipment sourcing, consultant recruitment, branding & marketing and recruitment (MD and staff). The hospital was opened in June 2013 and subsequent opportunities for joint venture expansion has been identified and planning permission for a further 30, drugstore 000 sq ft development has been established.

“Over the last two years, but especially in our first year of design, build and business start-up, Horsetiger provided an all-encompassing management service for us. Being new to the healthcare industry we were keen  to put our business vision quickly into action and so Alasdair Muir of Horsetiger  provided the crucial  link between the clinical  and commercial realities of our substantial  £ multi-million project. To drive the project forward we required a skill set that not only highlighted the key issues but provided solutions to them as well – Horsetiger delivered on all of these. He still is a valuable member of our management team.”
