Administrative/Biographical History

Greenock and District Combination Hospital, later known as Gateside Infectious Diseases Hospital, was opened in 1908. As the original name implies, representatives from the corporations of Greenock, Gourock, Port Glasgow, and from Renfrew County Council jointly managed it. 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 closed in 1979. As the incidence of infectious diseases fell in the 1950s and 1960s so the hospital changed its function to orthopaedic surgery, paediatric medicine and general medicine.
