Discover a fully integrated centre of excellence for health, science and education in the South East
Aspiring to be an Academic, Health and Science Centre (ASHC), Kent Medical Campus will bring together businesses and organisations involved in finding solutions to complex healthcare issues and scientific research and development.
Kent Medical Campus offers a location designed to stimulate collaborative opportunities between research-led health and life science businesses with clinical service providers, supported by universities and specialist training providers.
Located in Maidstone, the 30-acre landscaped business park has permission to develop 98,000m2 (1,000,000 ft2) of flexible and innovative commercial space, including A1, B1 (directly associated with life science, healthcare and medical service sectors), C2 and D1 use classes. Once fully developed, it will provide up to 4,000 jobs. The Enterprise Zone already includes a Cygnet secure mental health facility and a step-down care unit operated by Care UK, complementing the KIMS Hospital (see below) which forms a separate part of the wider Campus. The new Maidstone Innovation Centre – offering state-of-the-art and flexible spaces in inspirational surroundings – opened in November 2021.

Identified as a strategic development location, Kent Medical Campus has the backing and support of Maidstone Borough Council and South East Local Enterprise Partnership.
