MORE details about the £451m plan for a new Royal Liverpool Hospital and BioCampus were revealed yesterday.
Health chiefs said the project will give Liverpool a new identity as a “city of science”.
It is predicted it will create up to 5,000 well-paid jobs for the city and hundreds more during the construction phase.
Yesterday city leaders were told how cutting-edge care will be delivered at the new Royal, the first NHS institution of its size to provide 100% single rooms.
The BioCampus, which will be situated next door once the old hospital has been knocked down, will harness expertise in the field of life sciences and work on developing life-saving drugs.
City Mayor Joe Anderson said: “I think this project only underscores the fact that Liverpool’s creativity and inventiveness knows no bounds.”
