The original Chirk and District Hospital was built and financed by weekly contributions by every coal miner in the district of Chirk and surrounding areas. The new Community Hospital succeeds in continuing the strong local tradition; the coal mines have long gone, but the bond between hospital and community has outlived the original hospital structure, which was demolished to develop the new one. All that remains are the original foundation stones proudly built into the wall at the entrance area, and the spirit to provide the highest quality care. Chirk hospital was newly built and re-opened in 1990.
The catchment covers a population of approximately 50,000 and all services are National Health Service, there is no private provision.
