The Lister Hospital is an NHS hospital based on the outskirts of Stevenage in Hertfordshire. It opened in 1972 and is operated by the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust along with the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Welwyn Garden City. The Lister Hospital currently has 720 beds and is a general hospital, which includes accident and emergency, urology and renal dialysis units.
With an investment of around £150 million, the Lister hospital was transformed.[when?] This included a new surgery unit (called the Treatment Centre), an expanded maternity unit, multi-storey car park and major changes to the emergency and inpatient services.
