About Spanish Town Hospital

The Spanish Town Hospital was opened by Sir Hugh Foot in 1952 and has been a major landmark in Spanish Town since then.

It is the largest 'Type B' Hospital in the island and has statistics comparable to Kingston Public Hospital and Cornwall Regional Hospital, the islandís only two 'Type A' hospitals.

The hospital is located in the parish of St. Catherine, the fastest growing parish in the island and continues to experience an increasing demand on its services as it serves rapidly growing communities in St. Catherine such as Portmore, Eltham and Ensom City. Also, its close proximity to three major highways contributes to an increasing number of victims of motor vehicle accidents accessing the hospital for Emergency Medical Care.

As the population continues to grow, a number of improvements have been undertaken to improve the services offered to our patients thanks to our generous sponsors. In 2008, a new haemodialysis centre, equipped with seven (7) machines, six (6) stations as well as other dialysis equipment was officially opened. The centre, valued at valued at some $20 million, is a gift from the family of Ernest Hoo and is named the Katie Hoo Haemodialysis Centre, in honour of his mother who passed away at the hospital in April 1965.

In February 2009, King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain opened the King of Spain Wing. The state-of-the-art facility was erected from a derelict out-patient building a few meters away from the hospitalís laboratory. The 34 bed facility which also hosts the Physiotherapy Department has significantly enhanced the quality of service that is offered and is in keeping with the Governmentís objectives of rehabilitating Jamaicaís health plants.
