Inverurie Hospital is a small hospital in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

It has previously been known as the Joint Hospital, County Hospital, and Inverurie Infectious Diseases Hospital. It was founded in 1897. The Infectious diseases hospital opened in December 1940 as an 80-bedded fever hospital, admitting patients with infectious diseases from across Aberdeenshire.

The 62-bed hospital comprises DOME Ward, Psychogeriatric Unit and male and female GP Wards. The GP Ward includes a Palliative Care Suite. There are Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy services for rehabilitation. A small Casualty Department is run at the hospital. The Cardiac Assessment Unit includes echocardiographic, exercise ECG and holter monitoring facilities. A Community Dementia Team run by Aberdeenshire Council is also based at the hospital.

A satellite renal dialysis unit has also been built at the site.
