Site history notes
The remote 5 acre site was purchased by Grangemouth Town Council in 1901 for £1900 and a fever hospital built and equipped for a further £4,600. In the 1930s the staff consisted of a matron, 3 qualified nurses, 2 maids and a washer-woman. However, the council found it hard to retain staff due to the remoteness of the site and the wards were too small to make conversion into a children's hospital impracticable. Consequently a decision was made to close the hospital in September 1937.
