This District General Hospital, with more than 3,400 staff and approximately 774 beds, provides a comprehensive range of hospital services for inpatients, day cases and outpatients.
The Health Board as a whole serves a population of more than 600,000 and many of the inpatient and specialist services at the Royal Gwent Hospital support the entire catchment area. Outpatient services are utilised primarily by those in Newport and the surrounding area.
In recent years a massive redevelopment programme has been undertaken to provide a new Cardiology Unit, Medical Day Case Unit, Medical Admissions Unit, Paediatric A&E, complete refurbishment of the outpatient facilities and a £5m Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology Unit. Work has now been completed on an expansion to the Main Delivery Unit, with two new obstetric operating theatres, high dependancy beds, extra delivery rooms and a six bed post operative support ward.
A proposal is under discussion that would make the hospital a sub-Deanery of the University of Wales College of Medicine. This proposition builds on the substantial links that already exist between the Royal Gwent Hospital and the University Hospital of Wales, with a number of joint appointments in many clinical departments.
The hospital, along with St Woolos is serviced by the Operational Services Department.
The Royal Gwent Hospital is situated on the western edge of Newport Town Centre on the A48 main road to Cardiff.
