Administrative / Biographical History

Johnstone Hospital was built in 1887 and designed by John Woodrow of Bridge of Weir. It was originally an Infectious Diseases hospital and Sanatorium.
To begin with it held 16 beds but patient numbers later rose to 71 geriatric patients and 24 respiratory tuberculosis patients by 1966.
After the formation of the National Health Service it was initially under the jurisdiction of the Board of Management for Paisley and District Hospitals until 1974 when this was taken over by the Renfrew District of Argyll and Clyde Health Board. When the Argyll and Clyde Health Board was dissolved in 2006, responsibility passed to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
