Hatyai Hospital (Thai: โรงพยาบาลหาดใหญ่) is a general hospital in Hat Yai, Songkhla Province, Thailand. A regional hospital under the Ministry of Public Health, it serves as a referral centre for nearby community hospitals mainly within Songkhla, but also in parts of Pattani and Satun Provinces. It nominally has a capacity of 640 beds, but as is often the case with most regional hospitals, faces problems of overcrowding and is over capacity most of the time.

The hospital was founded in 1957 and has gradually expanded since then. Currently it also serves as a teaching hospital for Prince of Songkhla University under the Collaborative Project to Increase Production of Rural Doctors (CPIRD), and is certified for residency training in internal medicine, obstetrics & gynaecology, orthopaedics, paediatrics, and surgery.
