Administrative / Biographical History
Elderslie Hospital opened in 1893 as the Johnstone Cottage Hospital. It had just 16 beds and dealt with all cases except psychiatric and infectious dieseases. It joined the National Health Service in 1948 under the Paisley & District Hospitals Board of Management. At the reorganisation of 1974 it was transferred to the Renfrew District of Argyll & Clyde Health Board. From 1958-1970 Elderslie Hospital functioned as a gynaecology unit and after 1970 it became a unit for children with severe learning difficulties.
