University Hospital Crosshouse is a large district general hospital in Kilmarnock, Scotland, built to replace the old Kilmarnock Infirmary. It is run by NHS Ayrshire and Arran providing services to the North Ayrshire and East Ayrshire areas, including the Isle of Arran. It is located one mile outside the town in the village of Crosshouse.
The hospital was completed by Melville Dundas & Whitson in 1978 and replaced the Kilmarnock Infirmary. It was opened as the North Ayrshire District General Hospital, but staff soon took to calling it "Nadge," hence the adoption of the local place name of Crosshouse.
