Following a public consultation exercise in 2015, it was decided that the new facilities would be called The Baird Family Hospital in recognition of the contribution made to women’s health by the Baird family, in the North East and beyond; and The ANCHOR Centre in line with the ‘ANCHOR’ brand (Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiotherapy) which has been in use for over 20 years.
