Hospital of St. Cross

The Hospital of St Cross has 110 beds and six operating theatres, including one mobile theatre. We have an excellent reputation for elective surgery and rehabilitation services.  The hospital has the Rugby Urgent Care Centre on site, and also boasts a newly-refurbished Blood Taking Unit.

It also has a £1 million purpose-built Haematology and Oncology centre – The Maple Unit – that opened in 2021.

The unit, which has five outpatient consultation rooms and nine day case treatment chairs, was developed with support from some generous donations from local charities.

The Hospital of St Cross was rated 'Good' following the most recent Care Quality Commission inspection in 2015.


When you visit St Cross you will find that all of our departments and wards are clearly sign posted. Many of our visitors also find our volunteers helpdesk located by security very helpful when asking for directions.
