University Hospital of North Durham is an acute care hospital, which is part of County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust. The hospital was opened in 2001 and replaced the older Dryburn Hospital on the same site.
The Main Hospital building contains the vast majority of the hospitals departments. It has a basement for pathology and pharmacy and three other floors, each consisting of a long main corridor with wards and departments on both sides. Most of the wards consist of four bedded single sex bays.
A few buildings from the original ‘Dryburn Hospital’ remain. These are used for less acute services such as the renal dialysis centre. This area is called the East Wing.
The hospital is supported by a further 88 community hospital beds in its catchment region for rehabilitation.
