About the hospital and its services

Ilkeston Community Hospital is a Derbyshire Community Health Services (DCHS) led healthcare facility on Heanor Road, Ilkeston, which offers a range of services for the local and wider community. 

Its origins date back to 1884, when two cottages in Station Road, Ilkeston, were converted into a hospital. In 1987, Diana Princess of Wales opened a renovated building that we know today.
