Seafield Hospital is a UK National Health Service hospital in Buckie, Morayshire, Scotland. It is administered by NHS Grampian.

In 1911, Rathven Parish Hospital was opened to care for the sick poor of Buckie and surrounding parish of Rathven. Further buildings were added in 1919, 1930 and 1964. By this time the hospital was known as Seafield Hospital and admitted both adults and children. The building was extensively refurbished in 2001 and new front doors were added in 2004. Seafield Hospital has 32 beds providing medical care, rehabilitation, assessment, palliative/terminal care, convalescence and respite care.[1] There is also a minor injuries unit.[2]
