The hospital was built by the four surviving children of George and Elizabeth Burt as a memorial to their parents in 1894. Swanage Hospital remained a cottage Hospital until 1948 when it became an NHS hospital. The impressive fire place that is still in situ when you enter the hospital has the original ‘bas relief’ medallions of George and Elizabeth Burt.
Originally designed to house 14 in-patients, Swanage Hospital now has 15 in-patient beds, a Minor Injuries Unit, X-ray and ultrasound, day surgery, endoscopy services and physiotherapy. Our out-patients department is supported by consultants from Poole General, Royal Bournemouth and Dorchester County Hospitals.
Swanage Hospital’s end of life care on Stanley Purser has been recognised by the award of Gold Standard Framework accreditation. We have also completed the first stage for the Quality Mark for Elder Friendly Care and our endoscopy service has also attained JAG (joint advisory group) accreditation. In addition, the radiology department is QSI accredited.
The hospital is very well supported by a very committed Friends of Swanage Hospital and also held in very high regard by the town of Swanage.
