The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn has seen no new Covid patients and sent its last positive patient home on Tuesday.
Hospital medical director Frankie Swords took to Twitter to break the news and express her delight.
She said: "Today we didn’t admit a single new person with Covid to @TeamQEH and were able to discharge our last positive patient home.
"Can’t tell you how good that feels."
The hospital previously announced it would contact each patient who caught Covid on its wards and the families of those who died of the virus.
