Craigavon Area Hospital (Irish: Ospidéal Cheantar Craigavon) is a large teaching hospital in Portadown, Craigavon, County Armagh, Northern Ireland. It serves an estimated 241,000 people from the boroughs/districts of Craigavon, Banbridge, Armagh and Dungannon–South Tyrone. It is managed by the Southern Health and Social Care Trust and is located within the townland of Lisnisky, beside the A27 road, at the edge of Portadown.
The hospital, which replaced Carleton House, Lurgan Hospital, and Banbridge Hospital, opened in 1972. In February 2003 the hospital was designated as one of the nine acute hospitals in the acute hospital network of Northern Ireland on which healthcare would be focused under the government health policy 'Developing Better Services'.
