Fulwood Hall Hospital was opened as a purpose built facility in 1986. In 2009 the hospital completed a £9m pound investment to refurbish and expand the site, making it the largest independent hospital in Lancashire and one of the largest in the north of England. Independent patient satisfaction surveys show that 100% of our patients would recommend the hospital to family and friends and due to careful screening and rigorous infection control processes, the hospital has had a zero% MRSA incidence for three years running.
