The £27 million Sheffield Women's Hospital—to be known as the Jessop Wing—is near final completion and is due to open on schedule on the weekend of 3 February 2001.

The new facility will provide a much needed modern women's hospital that the people of Sheffield can rightly be proud of, replacing the outdated Victorian facilities that currently exist.
