The present Cumberland Infirmary was the first UK Private Finance Initiative hospital to be bond financed. Health Management (Carlisle) plc, a 50/50 dedicated joint venture company formed by AMEC and Interserve (Facilities Management) Ltd was given a 45-year concession period. Designed and built by AMEC, the £87m hospital took 29 months to construct.
Consolidating the operations of three previous hospitals namely the previous Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle City General and Carlisle City Maternity, the Cumberland Infirmary provides 444 beds for the local community. The hospital was officially opened by British Prime Minister Tony Blair, on 16 June 2000.
