The facility has its origins in the Lloyds Fever Hospital established in Market Street in 1853.[1] It was completely rebuilt and reopened as the Altrincham Provident Dispensary and Hospital in 1870[2] before joining the National Health Service in 1948.[1] After services transferred to a modern community hospital on Railway Street,[3] Altrincham General Hospital closed in April 2015.[4] The site in Market Street was subsequently redeveloped to create a health and wellbeing centre as well as a new home for Altrincham Library.[5]
