HistoryEdit

The hospital was commissioned to replace the aging Ebbw Vale Hospital which had closed at the end of 2005.[1] The new hospital, which was built at a cost of £53 million and stands on the site of the former Ebbw Vale Steelworks, opened in October 2010.[2]

It was the first NHS hospital to be built in England or Wales with 100% single room, ensuite facilities to help control infection and improve privacy.[3]
