Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan is the hospital opened in October 2010 to replace the old Ebbw Vale Hospital, which closed at the end of 2005. It cost £34 million and stands on the site of the former Ebbw Vale Steelworks. The hospital is managed by the Aneurin Bevan Local Health Board.
It was the first NHS hospital to be built in England or Wales with 100% single room, ensuite facilities to help control infection and improve privacy.
The 107-bed Local General Hospital provides 10,000 square metres of accommodation for outpatient clinics, local diagnostics, minor injuries unit, therapy services, an adult mental health unit and inpatient facilities for rehabilitation, palliative care and elderly support services.
There are four wards in the hospital:
- Ebbw Ward
- Sirhowy Ward
- Tyleri Ward
- Carn-y-Cefn Ward (Mental Health)
