General Information

University Hospital Ayr was opened in 1991 and is a District General Hospital situated outside Ayr. It has approximately 330 beds and serves approximately 100,000 people in South Ayrshire.


The theatre + ITU are on the ground floor, along with fracture clinics which are located in suite H.


There are no paediatric services at Ayr.

Since August 2021 all trauma services have been merged with Crosshouse hospital and so Ayr has become a purely elective unit with inpatients on the ground floor Station 16.

There is a WRVS Cafe on the ground floor, adjacent to the main entrance. There is also a Canteen on the first floor. Similarly to Crosshouse, Ayr Hospital is known to have good food and the scones are of equal legendary status. 
Orthopaedic Department

The orthopaedic elective ward is known as 'Station 16'. The Consultant offices are on the 3rd floor, near station 10 with some behind the nurses station on Station 16.
