Time and space to care

At our award-winning hospital, rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), we use the latest, most advanced technology and techniques to achieve the best health outcomes for you in a calm, unhurried and supportive environment. Our comfortable and contemporary facilities are set in uplifting surroundings in the heart of the Kent countryside; it’s the perfect space to relax and recuperate.

Our well-regarded specialist Consultants and experienced and compassionate support staff are easy to talk to and will care for you through diagnosis, treatment and recovery - whether you’re with us as an outpatient or inpatient. We’re proud of our rigorous infection control and, with the additional hygiene measures we’ve put in place following COVID-19, you can be confident we’ve done everything we can to protect you.

Our history

We have a proud history of caring for people since 1907, when the hospital was opened by the National Association for the Establishment and Maintenance of Sanatoria to treat postal workers suffering from tuberculosis.

Since then it’s been transformed into a modern, contemporary facility which delivers advanced healthcare using the latest procedures and technologies.

Our history

Our facilities

We’re proud of our stunning location and contemporary facilities, which have been designed around our patients’ needs. As an outpatient you’ll be welcomed to our spacious and well-equipped consulting rooms, and cared for by our friendly nursing team. As an inpatient you’ll enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your own comfortable room and be looked after by staff with the time and space to care.

Our imaging suite provides minimally invasive, modern MRI scans, ultrasound and CT scanning and x-ray equipment, providing you with fast access to diagnosis. Our Ambulatory Care Unit provides the highest quality equipment for upper gastrointestinal investigations, including sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy. Our three operating theatres feature an ultraclean filtered air system to reduce airborne bacteria, making them extremely clean and safe.

The Physiotherapy department is staffed by a team of Registered Physiotherapists who will support you through your post-surgery recovery as an inpatient and offer expert advice and treatment to outpatients.
