The Hospital at Rye

Patient in bed at Rye Hospital

The intermediate care hospital is situated at the top of the hill overlooking the ancient Cinque Port Town of Rye. Set in beautiful grounds, it has nineteen beds and free parking for patients and visitors.

Within the grounds lies St. Bartholomew's Court, (leased to Sanctuary Housing) with 30 self contained units for those aged 60 and over with varying care needs. Work has begun on increasing this to 55 units, which will enable 24 hour care to be provided.


We provide intermediate hospital care to the community. At present there are 19 beds, of which 16 are for NHS and 3 for private patients. NHS patients are accepted by the Clinical Lead or Senior Nurse on duty, having assessed suitability and whether their needs can be met...

  • Continence Nurse
  • Counselling
  • Diabetes/Endocrinology
