How to get there

By road:  Leave the A55 at Junction 24, signposted Rhuddlan and Abergele.  Join the A548 by taking the first exit at the roundabout and proceed into Abergele Town centre.  Continue through a first set of traffic lights and, at the second set, turn left onto the A548 (signposted for Llanfair TH, Llanrwst and Abergele Hospital).  This road takes you past housing estates on either side and assumes a rural aspect on its climb out of the town.  After approximately one mile, Abergele Hospital is signposted on the left.

Abergele Hospital itself is accessed by crossing a viaduct and features car parks at either end of the site.  The main entrance is situated opposite the first of these car parks.

Hospital Profile  

Abergele Hospital in North Wales was originally built in 1910 by the people of Manchester for children from the city who suffered from Tuberculosis.   The hospital was opened in 1931, and was a Sanatorium until 1955 when it became a Chest hospital for children and adults.  The hospital’s main use in recent years has been to care for orthopaedic patients and in 2009 the North Wales Adolescent Service opened an inpatient unit on the site.
In April 2012 Abergele also became the centre for ophthalmology in the area, following the closure of H.M. Stanley Hospital in St. Asaph where the Ophthalmology Unit had been located since 1954.  The Ophthalmology Unit at Abergele is aptly named the ‘Stanley Eye Unit’.
