Hospital Profile

Penrhos Stanley Hospital opened in February 1996 and replaced the Valley Hospital and the former Stanley Sailors Hospital.

Maximum advantage has been taken of the seaside location, which affords panoramic views from most of the patient areas. The remainder of the accommodation overlooks internal courtyards, which are used both for relaxation and therapy. The focus throughout has been to achieve a high level of privacy and to create a non-stressful environment.
