Arrowe Park Hospital is a large, acute hospital, located on a 15-acre (6.1 ha) section of Arrowe Park, close to the village of Upton, Wirral, Merseyside. It is one of three hospitals managed by Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, the others being Clatterbridge Hospital and Wirral Women and Children's Hospital which is also based on the Arrowe Park site.
Planning for Arrowe Park Hospital began in the 1960s, although building did not start until the late 1970s. The facility was built to replace Birkenhead General Hospital in Birkenhead, Highfield Maternity Hospital in Wallasey, St Catherine's Hospital in Birkenhead and Leasowe Hospital in Leasowe and Victoria Central Hospital in Wallasey. The hospital was officially opened by the Queen on 4 May 1982.
