William Harvey Hospital image

The William Harvey Hospital, Ashford is an acute hospital providing a range of emergency and elective services as well as comprehensive maternity, trauma, orthopaedic and paediatric and neonatal Intensive care services. The hospital is located on the outskirts of Ashford, adjacent to the M20 and was commissioned in 1977.
