Welcome to Holbeach Hospital: Celebrating 30 years of being a truly dedicated community service
A warm welcome awaits you at Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital care home. Set near the rural market town of Holbeach, surrounded by mature gardens and open fields, our hospital provides a range of care options to suit your needs.
Our Hospital Trust was formed in 1988 after the South Lincolnshire Health Authority announced their intention to close Holbeach Hospital. Rather than fight the closure, local community leaders chose to work with the health authority to find a way for the facility to remain open. Substantial funds were raised by local people and Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital Trust was formed. The Trust now provides beds for use by local GPs, nursing home beds, as well as re-ablement beds. Not only did the people of Holbeach and the surrounding villages save their hospital, they provided a resource which continues to grow and meet the needs of the community it serves.
The Hospital is a registered charity (701458) and still receives tremendous support from the local community today. The League of Friends work tirelessly to raise funds via their shop in Holbeach and through their committee of dedicated fundraisers. The support of the local community continues to be invaluable and is greatly appreciated. Recently their fundraising has enabled us to buy a new minibus which is used to take residents out on day trips as well as by our Activities Team.
2019 is a special year for Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital Trust and marks 30 years of being owned and run by the community. To celebrate we are hosting a 30th Anniversary Garden Party, with so much to do for all the family. Listen to the Ukulele Orchestra whilst relaxing and enjoying a cup of tea and cake or Prosecco and strawberries, play on our games stalls, the kids can burn off steam on our bouncy castle, have their faces painted and then have a go on our kiddies games. We hope to see you there! We will also have private sellers, selling a range of lovely products, including bath, body and home fragrances, preserves and crafts. We are also very excited to announce that we will be having a BBMF Flyover during the event and a selection of classic/high performance and special interest cars to see!
We believe friends and relatives should be able to visit residents at any time during the day so we do not have restrictive visiting times. We only ask that visitors do not arrive too early in the morning or too late in the evening.
We have ample free parking at the front and rear of the building.
