Kelling Hospital has received funding from a local government partnership to bring together services across the county.
The north Norfolk hospital is one of a group of public sector bodies to be awarded a grant by the Norfolk One Public Estate Partnership.
The £345,000 grant from the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Cabinet Office went to the county council, district councils, NHS and the police.
The sum was awarded as part of a £15m programme of national investment, to maximise the use of taxpayer owned buildings, and help services share running costs.
Services set to benefit include: Dereham Hospital; regeneration projects in Hunstanton; Norwich Community Hospital; Kelling Hospital; and Shrublands, in Gorleston.
Steve Blatch, chair of Norfolk's One Public Estate Board, said: 'This latest round of funding will allow a number of projects to be taken forward around the county including redevelopment of the former Mile Cross depot site in Norwich to provide new housing, health care and leisure facilities and feasibility studies for public service delivery hubs in Diss and north Norfolk.'
Mr Blatch added: 'These joint projects, which explore co-location of services, will deliver better service outcomes for local communities whilst securing new housing and jobs through the redevelopment of surplus property.'
