Administrative / Biographical History

In 1894, ear, nose and throat patients, formerly treated in Greenock Royal Infirmary, were transferred to a new ENT department within the Eye Infirmary. In 1921, the ENT department was transferred to the old prison buildings in Nelson Street where it remained for a decade. A new hospital was built in Eldon Street, with provision for twenty in-patients. It also had an out-patients department and worked in co-operation with Greenock Royal Infirmary. With the establishment of the National Health Service in 1948, the hospital joined the Board of Management for the Greenock and District Hospitals. In 1974 it passed into the care of the Inverclyde District of the Argyll and Clyde Board and was closed in 1979.
