History

Late 19th century

The Victoria Hospital first opened its doors in the late 19th century, with the earliest building (which is now listed) located on Langside Road. In 1893, new wards opened which doubled the number of beds and the Nurses Home was extended in 1900 and 1905 to cope with the extra demand.

1902 - 1930s

In 1902, management decided to build a new ward block, due to long waiting lists. This opened in 1906 with expansion continuing through to the 1930s, when the final wing on Battlefield Road was constructed.

50s, 60s and 70s

After further expansions and developments were made throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s, it caused the site to have a confusing layout, which led to the decision to close the hospital and rebuild across the road.
