Hay Lodge Hospital

A local general hospital and health centre located in Peebles in the Scottish Borders, Hay Lodge Hospital overlooks the River Tweed a quarter-mile (0.5 km) west of the town centre. The hospital building is flat-roofed and constructed of cream-coloured brick. It opened in 1983 in the grounds of the late-18th century Hay Lodge, which now provides supporting office accommodation and staff quarters.

The hospital has two wards and a total of 50 beds. It provides a mix of acute and local services, including geriatric care, a minor injuries clinic and a variety of consultant-led clinics in areas including orthopaedics, ophthalmology, gynaecology and obstetrics, supported by local general practitioners. Hay Lodge also offers convalescent care for patients discharged from the Borders General Hospital.

Hay Lodge is a B-listed three-storey villa built c.1772 for Adam Hay of Soonhope, a Captain in the 6th Regiment of Foot and Member of Parliament for Peeblesshire. It was extended in the early 19th century creating a five-bay entrance front to the west. Harled with sandstone dressings, the house has a south-facing drawing room with a large bow-front. Neo-Classical details are preserved inside.
