The present facility on Wigginton Road, which replaced numerous other facilities, including Acomb Hospital, Deighton Grove Hospital, Fulford Hospital, the Military Hospital, Yearsley Bridge Hospital, York City Hospital and York County Hospital, was designed by Llewelyn-Davies, Weeks, Forestier-Walker and Bor and built and equipped at a cost of £12.5 million between 1971 and 1976.[1] It was officially opened by Princess Alexandra on 28 July 1977.[1]


There is an urgent care centre at York Hospital which is open every day.[2] Hospedia gives patients and staff entertainment and music through the day and night. It also provides some specialist shows, including live commentary from nearby York City Football Club.[3]
