The hospital cared for Sagle Bernstein's sister
A planning application for a new £26m hospital in Norfolk has been submitted.
North Norfolk District Council planners will consider proposals for a new hospital to replace Cromer Hospital in Mill Road, Cromer, built in 1932.
The new hospital will cater for out-patients, day case operations, extended diagnostic services and minor injuries.
The hospital is due to be completed in 2011 and £13m funding will come from the Sagle Bernstein Legacy made in 2001 in memory of a local woman's sister.
Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will build two general anaesthetic operating theatres, an out-patient procedure room and an ophthalmic theatre.
Diagnostic services will include a permanent on-site breast screening service, a scanner for osteoporosis diagnosis and facilities for a mobile MRI scanner.
Trust chairman David Prior said: "As a NHS Foundation Trust we are in the very welcome position of being able to use new-found financial freedoms to invest significant money into the local economy to deliver a new hospital for the people of north Norfolk.
"We believe that local people will benefit from the wider range of services we aim to be able to provide at Cromer from out-patient services, day case surgery, to minor injuries and therapy services."
About 250 local people took part in the consultation process before plans were drawn up for submission.
Sagle Bernstein left the money to the hospital as thanks for the care her sister received there.
