The University Hospital Arnau de Vilanova (officially, Hospital Universitari Arnau de Vilanova in Catalan) is a public medical institution in Lleida, Catalonia, Spain, and the largest[citation needed] one in the surrounding area (terres de Lleida or terres de Ponent) and province.

It was opened in 1956. Not to be confused with a hospital in Valencia called Hospital Arnau de Vilanova, the hospital in Lleida is run by the Catalan Health Institute (ICS) and has a total of 447 beds. Nowadays named after the Valencian physician Arnau de Vilanova, its first official name (during the Francoist dictatorship) was Residencia Sanitaria General Moscardó and belonged, at first, to the Instituto Nacional de Previsión (INP) and then to INSALUD until 1981, when it was transferred to the Generalitat de Catalunya.
