Benefits of Healthcare Hire

Hiring healthcare facilities from ModuleCo Healthcare


We offer the fastest possible way to get fully compliant critical healthcare facilities on to your site operational within weeks of approval - not years.

Typically a temporary operating theatre and supporting medical facilities can be operational from 4 to 12 weeks from date of order.

Our theatres can be procured through the Buying Solutions (formerly OGC Buying.Solutions) framework enabling Trusts to avoid the OJEU tender route and save months off NHS procurement programmes.

Low Cost

Due to our experience, and our tried and tested production and installation process we are able to offer the lowest hire rates available for the hire of HBN / HTM compliant facilities.

You pay for the temporary healthcare buildings only for as long as you need to, meaning you do not expend large sums of capital or require future refurbishment or demolition.

We are responsible for all monitoring and maintenance during the hire, so you will have no maintenance costs for as long as you are using your temporary healthcare buildings.

Off Balance Sheet

We retain the risk of ownership and responsibility for the smooth operation of all modular healthcare facilities we hire.

Throughout the hire our modular operating theatres, decant wards, modular mortuaries, modular diagnostic imaging facilities, and all other temporary healthcare buildings remain off your balance sheet freeing up capital for other projects.

Proven Designs

Our standard healthcare designs for healthcare buildings have evolved over time to deliver HBN/HTM compliant solutions that can be easily sited, resited and expanded.

Having supplied temporary operating theatres and other critical care facilities to numerous healthcare Trusts over the years we have encountered most design issues and devised methods of incorporating healthcare hire facilities into hospital estates.

We are able to agree a healthcare design with you in the quickest possible timescales. You will not need to engage a costly external design team to get your healthcare facility up and running.


We are expert in delivering and installing temporary healthcare buildings into the tightest and most difficult sites.

Temporary ward accommodation and temporary operating theatre suites can be added to the side of existing facilities either at ground level or supported on steelwork to match a specified level, or craned into isolated courtyards or car parks, or can on to roofs or in basements.

Our sales and healthcare design teams are experienced in assessing a hospital estate to find sites with the correct space, services and internal connectivity and in many cases will identify sites that a healthcare Trust will not have considered.

Cost Certainty

A hire rate is agreed early on in the process. Enabling works that may be needed to prepare for arrival of the facility can be supplied for a fixed cost by ModuleCo Healthcare, or you can appoint a third party who will work to drawings and specifications supplied by us.

All maintenance and reactive repair work is our responsibility. You bear no risk for overrun, or cost variation as with traditionally supplied alternatives.
