Clement Atkinson Memorial Hospital is a historic hospital building located at Coatesville, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It is a building in five sections. The original section was the home of Dr. Atkinson, and is a 2 1/2-story, three-bay brick rowhouse dwelling in the Colonial Revival style. It and a one-story, eight-room, hospital wing at the rear of the dwelling, were built in 1932. A second story was added to the hospital wing in 1937. Later additions took place in 1955, 1962, and 1969. The hospital was converted to a community center and low-income apartments in 1991. The hospital served the local African American population and remained in operation until 1977.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.[1]
