Lymington New Forest Hospital is a community hospital in Lymington, Hampshire, designed by Murphy Philipps Architects. Constructed at a cost of £36 million[1] by Ryhurst Ltd through a private finance initiative,[2] the hospital was opened on 6 February 2007 by Princess Anne.[1]

The hospital houses a diagnostic treatment centre, several specialist outpatient clinics, two operating theatres, two endoscopy suites, medical and surgical day units, a medical unit including stroke rehabilitation and a surgical ward. The radiology department has three radiology rooms, a 1.5T MRI scanner, a 64-slice CT scanner, a DEXA scanner and two ultra sound suites. The hospital also has a fluoroscopy unit, which opened in January 2014.[3]

There is also an urgent care centre which combines a minor injuries unit, a medical assessment unit and the out of hours service. Additional facilities include a pharmacy, education and training centre, clinical library, restaurant, League of Friends shop and tea bar, multi faith room, hospital radio and extended staff facilities.

The hospital is owned and administered by the Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust and replaced the older Lymington Hospital.
