The hospital has its origins in the Pontypridd Union Workhouse which was completed in 1865.[1] An infirmary and isolation hospital were built on the site in the late 19th century.[1] The tunnel mouth of Pontypridd Graig railway station, which emerges into in the hospital car park, was last used in 1930.[2][3]

The complex joined the National Health Service as Graig Hospital in 1948.[1] After the war it became a geriatric hospital[4] before being completely re-built as Dewi Sant Hospital in the 1960s.[1]
