The University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust was formed by merging North Staffordshire Royal Infirmary (former voluntary hospital), City General Hospital (former workhouse infirmary) and Hartshill Orthopaedic Hospital (former orthopaedic hospital). It was dissolved in October 2014 when the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust was established.
Excavations on the main site have revealed that a large medieval hospital operated on exactly the same site from the thirteenth century until the 1580s.
In 2003 the hospital was chosen for a £350-million Private Finance Initiative development, and work on major new facilities is now underway. Most of the wards and Accident & Emergency department will be moved from the Royal Infirmary site across to the new site over the course of 2012, after which the former site will be redeveloped for much needed housing in this area.
From April 2012 all A&E departments were on the new site, together with new Maternity and Oncology units.

It is run by the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust.
