The Ipswich Hospital is a large district general hospital in Suffolk, England. It provides a wide range of services to the population of east Suffolk and serves a catchment area of approximately 360,000 people.

It is a busy district general hospital providing a wide range of emergency, medical, surgical and maternity services to its users. The hospital is currently working towards becoming a NHS Foundation Trust.

The future of the hospital has become issues in local politics, with campaigns to keep cancer and heart services in the hospital, with the Conservative candidate for the General election, Ben Gummer claiming that his "first priority is to save Ipswich Hospital".

Famous quotes containing the word hospital:

    The sun his hand uncloses like a statue,
    Irrevocably: thereby such light is freed
    That all the dingy hospital of snow
    Dies back to ditches.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
