With a total of 212 beds it incorporates a maternity unit, paediatric ward, surgical wards, medical wards, critical care unit, operating theatres, radiology, pathology, rehabilitation, ambulance and CSSD services amongst others.
The hospital also includes two elderly care wards managed by the Care Agency Elderly Residential Services.
