Inverclyde Royal Hospital, which opened in 1979, is a district general hospital in Greenock which serves a large population area of 125 000 consisting of Inverclyde (including Greenock), Largs, Isle of Bute and Cowal Peninsula.
Inverclyde provides many facilities including an A&E department, general medical and surgical inpatient beds, orthopaedics, ophthalmology and psychiatry. There is a three-bed intensive care unit and a four-bed high dependency unit and an eleven bed coronary care unit; providing a unique combined critical care unit. The Larkfield Unit, a five ward annexe to IRH, contains three geriatric medicine wards (including an acute stroke unit), a secure geriatric psychiatric ward, and a rehabilitation ward for patients with physical disabilities. However there is no consultant-led maternity unit at the hospital, only a midwife-led unit – consultant obstetric services have been based at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley since 2003 – and there are no in-patient paediatric services.
There are regular out-patient clinics in all medical and surgical specialties, obstetrics and gynaecology, and paediatrics.
