Facilities at Sancta Maria:


Sancta Maria Hospital is located just outside Swansea city centre and has commanding views over Swansea Bay, towards Mumbles and Gower. Patients can book a single room, many of which have en suite facilities. Parents are, of course, welcome to stay over with their children staying with us.

Every bedroom has an electronic nurse call system, Freeview television, a direct dial telephone and wireless internet access.

Visitors are welcome to dine with patients in their room for a small additional charge.

Menu options and refreshments

We recognise that when you are not feeling well, it can be difficult to find something you feel able to eat. With this in mind, we have designed a menu to cater for varying appetites.

As well as our sandwiches, salads, starters, main courses and desserts, we have introduced a range of ‘light diet’ options. Alternatively, if there is something you prefer that is not on our menu, your ward hostess will be pleased to do all they can to meet your request.

All food is prepared on site and local suppliers are used wherever possible. Please inform us of any special diets, and we will ensure that you’re well catered for.

Visitor meals can be ordered, so that visitors can eat with patients in their room. A drinks service is also available.

Operating theatres

The hospital has a main operating theatre equipped with an ultra clean air facility called laminar flow.

We have a state of the art day surgery unit, endoscopy suite and recovery room.

Pathology laboratory

Sancta Maria’s hospital pathology service provides a wide range of diagnostic pathology including microbiology, haematology, biochemistry and histopathology.

Supervised by a number of consultant pathologists, patients find using the service to be quick and easy, with appointments available without delay and results ready very promptly.

X-ray & imaging Services

Sancta Maria offers a comprehensive radiology service. Ultrasound, routine radiology and a mobile image intensifier allow us to complete most diagnostic examinations on site.

It is usually possible to arrange an appointment within a week of your GP referring you. For further information or to make an appointment, please call or send us an email.


Sancta Maria’s physiotherapy service, staffed by experienced Chartered Physiotherapists, provides expert professional treatment for both inpatients and outpatients.
