It is a 64 bedded unit consisting of fifty eight private bedrooms four of which are two bedded parent and child rooms and a high observation unit with two beds. Each private bedroom has its own en-suite facilities and a television with remote control. Meals are served as room service and we can offer a catering service for relatives and friends.

Springfield Hospital's parent company is Ramsay Health Care UK, an Australian company with a network of private hospitals and treatment centres across the country. Springfield Hospital is situated in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Chelmsford, with attractive landscaped gardens and free parking.

It is also accessible via train or bus service with Chelmsford train station being 10 minutes distance away by car and bus routes stopping directly outside of the hospital.

As a result, we are able to provide an excellent facility, with experienced, highly skilled staff. The hospital also provides access to advanced medical technology to ensure a safe and a comfortable patient experience.
