The Grange University Hospital

The way that we provide healthcare in Gwent is changing

Our new Specialist and Critical Care Centre - The Grange University Hospital - will provide a centre of excellence in Gwent to treat our most seriously ill patients, or those with significant injuries, and it will be the designated trauma unit for Gwent. The hospital will have 560 beds (including trollies and cots) and feature a 24-hour Acute Assessment Unit, Emergency Department and Helicopter Pad.  It will provide a 24/7 Emergency Service for patients that need specialist and critical care.
 
Ample parking facilities (more than 900 spaces) will be available for staff and patients.
 
The hospital will open ahead of schedule in November 2020 to help us respond to winter season pressures and a potential second wave of Covid-19.
