Other information

Founded in 1902 to take over from Northwood Hospital as Isolation Hospital for Isle of Thanet; however does not seem to have taken Smallpox patients, as a separate Isle of Thanet Smallpox Hospital opened in the same year (no records known to survive except mentions in Joint Hospital Board minutes)., From 1948 also took in patients from the Canterbury Group HMC area and even further afield. From 1955 became a chronic sick/geriatric (mainly) hospital until its closure in 1986, when patients were transferred to Ramsgate Hospital.
