Hestercombe ward

Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton

We care for patients who require surgery, whether it is planned or it’s needed as an emergency after an accident. If you are admitted to Hestercombe ward you will be expecting or recovering from an operation on your bones, joints, or spine to fix damage caused by an accident or illness such as cancer. We also look after patients in for breast surgery and operations such as hysterectomies.

Location: We are on level 1 of the Jubilee Building.
