Opened in 1983, Euxton Hall Private Hospital is one of Lancashire's leading private hospitals situated on the outskirts of Chorley but close to Preston and Wigan with easy access to the M65, M6 and M61 motorways.
The facility offers 32 beds all with en suite facilities to ensure complete privacy and by investing in advanced medical technology offers a wide range of treatments and services. On site there are two fully equipped ultra clean air theatres, an endoscopy and small treatment room.
Fulwood Hall Hospital was opened as a purpose built facility in 1986. In 2009 the hospital completed a Â£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.
