The new Girvan Community Hospital provides a much needed hub for health services within this Ayrshire town. Sitting low in the landscape it packs a significantly large amount of accommodation, while still managing to appear small.
The new community hospital was commissioned to replace the Davidson Cottage Hospital and two other ageing facilities within the town and had to ensure that it would meet today’s medical requirements and also remain a flexible and adaptable facility for the future.
The hospital provides a mixture of services including 26 GP acute inpatient beds, two GP practices, outpatient services (dental, podiatry, speech and language therapy, and rehabilitation) as well as other support services such as a community pharmacy, social care, the Scottish Ambulance Service, and soon the local police.
