Hull Royal Infirmary

Hull Royal Infirmary

Hull Royal Infirmary is one of the two main hospitals for Kingston upon Hull (the other being Castle Hill Hospital in nearby Cottingham). It is situated on Anlaby Road, just outside of the city centre, and is run by Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

The site is dominated by a 13-floor high tower block which houses the majority of the wards, as well as the Intensive Care Unit, Pharmacy, laboratories and canteen. A 4 floor building directly connected to the back of this tower block houses the Accident and Emergency department and Acute Admissions Unit, the High Dependency Unit, and radiology, as well as the Operating theatres and most of the hospital's outpatient facilities. There are a number of other buildings on the site, which includes the Haughton building, which now mostly houses wards for elderly patients, the mortuary, various laboratory and office buildings and several other buildings containing wards and other patient facilities. The site is shared by the Hull and East Yorkshire Women and Children's Hospital and the Hull and East Yorkshire Eye Hospital.

The East Riding Medical Education Centre is located within the grounds of Hull Royal Infirmary.

The hospital has a dedicated MRI scanning centre on site which houses three MRI scanners: two 1.5 Tesla scanners and one state-of-the-art 3.0 Tesla scanner which is owned by the University of Hull.
