The Rosie Hospital, adjacent to Addenbrooke's, is the 120-bed maternity and women's hospital with its own theatre suite, fetal assessment unit, ultrasound department and neonatal intensive care unit. It is the regional centre of excellence for maternity care with around 5,000 babies born there each year.
Gynaecology services are provided to the local and regional populations of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdon, North Essex and East and North Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Bedfordshire. In recent years, the Rosie's role as a specialist centre for women with complex gynaecological problems has increased significantly, particularly in the area of gynaecological cancer and reproductive medicine. Patient care benefits from the clinical research and teaching undertaken by the University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology embedded within the Rosie Hospital as part of the School of Clinical Medicine.
The Care Quality Commission review of the country's maternity services rated the Rosie Hospital as 'best performing', with the highest ranking in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
