More than £100m is being invested in NHS Grampian in a bid to improve facilities across the region.
A total of £122.5m is being injected into the public health service and will be used to create a £110m emergency care centre and a £12.5m energy centre at Foresterhill Health Campus.
The area is also set to benefit from a £25.7m boost to projects identified for delivery through revenue funding via the hub initiative.
These include Aberdeen Health Village which will receive a £15.5m boost, £4.7m for Woodside Health Centre and £5.5m at Forres Health Centre.
The investment announcement came as Public Health Minister Michael Matheson paid a visit to the Foresterhill Health Campus and the Aberdeen Health Village on Thursday.
He said: “Having the right facilities in the right place is important to people across Scotland and that is why we are determined to ensure both staff and patients the length and breadth of the country can work and be treated in the best possible surroundings.
“This significant investment in health building projects clearly sets out the strength of our commitment to the NHS in Scotland, and will mean that we can provide more sustainable, high quality and continually improving health care services close to home in Grampian and across the country."
Work is currently underway on the new Emergency Care Centre at Foresterhill in Aberdeen, which will bring together emergency and urgent care services into one building on the site. The new facility is scheduled for completion at the end of 2013.
Aberdeen Health Village will house a range of community health services, such as dentistry, radiology and sexual health services in one location and is due to open in December 2013.
Graeme Smith, director of modernisation at NHS Grampian, said: “We’re delighted with this investment – the result of a great deal of hard work by many people in NHS Grampian and of our good working relationship with the Scottish Government. It will play a major part in modernising patient care and the facilities used to support patient care.”
