HistoryEdit

The hospital, which was designed by Telfer Smith, opened as Builth Wells Cottage Hospital in 1897.[1] The hospital joined the National Health Service in 1948.[1] After the Glan-Irfon Health & Social Care Centre opened in the town, the hospital closed in 2013.[2] The old hospital site was subsequently acquired by Wales & West Housing for redevelopment for residential use.[3]
