Lymington Hospital was a consultant-led community hospital in Lymington, Hampshire. It was administered by New Forest Primary Care Trust before it was replaced by the Hampshire Primary Care Trust.

History[edit]

The fundraising for the new hospital was led by Lord Arthur Cecil, one of the younger sons of 2nd Marquess of Salisbury.[1] It was designed by Horace Bernton-Benjamin, a local architect, and included two four-bedded wards and one emergency ward.[1] It was opened as the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital in 1913.[2]

It installed x-ray equipment at an early stage,[1] before joining the National Health Service as Lymington Hospital in 1948.[3] After services were transferred to Lymington New Forest Hospital in 2007, [4] the site was redeveloped for housing.[5]
