Purchase of St Michael's Hospital

The long awaited purchase of St Michael's Hospital in Hayle, from The Congregation of the Daughters of the Cross of Liege, was completed in November 2003, securing the long term future of the hospital.

St Michael's Hospital plays a crucial part in the delivery of health care in the county, carrying out more than 5,000 operations each year. Its 69 beds are largely unaffected by peaks in demand for emergency admissions which means the hospital is able to offer 'ring fenced' facilities for planned surgery; essential to reducing waiting lists and providing quicker treatment for patients from across Cornwall.

The range of operations carried out at the hospital has expanded over recent years and now includes procedures in general surgery, urology, oral surgery, and orthopaedics including hip and knee replacements.

St Michael's Hospital is also a major outpatient centre for the county seeing more than 17,000 patients each year and is home to the specialist rehabilitation unit, Marie Therese House, which provides in and outpatient care for patients with neurological conditions and brain injuries. Services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and x-ray provide essential support in the diagnosis and treatment of in and outpatients at the hospital.
