Administrative/Biographical History

Broomhill Hospital was built by the Association for the Relief of Incurables in Glasgow and the West of Scotland and opened in 1876. It catered for patients suffering from tuberculosis, cancer, chronic rheumatism and other incurable conditions. Paupers were excluded. By 1893 Broomhill could accomodate 100 patients. In 1904 the Lanfine Home for tuberculosis sufferers was added. From 1960 the Lanfine Home was used for geriatric patients. In 1948 the hospitals were placed under the Kirkintilloch and Kilsyth Board of Management and in 1974 were transferred to the Northern District of the Greater Glasgow Health Board. Broomhill continued to cater for the young (under 65) chronic sick until it was closed along with Lanfine in 1995.
