Eastbourne District General Hospital is a National Health Service hospital in Eastbourne in East Sussex, England. It is managed by the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.

History[edit]

The hospital, which was built in the mid-1970s, was officially opened by Princess Alexandra in 1977.[1] It was expanded in the 1989 under a scheme which allowed the old Victorian St Mary’s Hospital to close and be demolished in 1990.[2] In 2015 the hospital confirmed that it had sent off a sample, taken from a patient with a history of travel in West Africa, for precautionary ebola testing at Public Health England.[3]
