HistoryEdit

The hospital was established by the conversion of two houses (one belonging to the Ebbw Vale Steelworks manager and one belonging to the Steelworks surgeon) in 1900.[1][2] It joined the National Health Service in 1948[1] and, following the successful development of community-based health services, closed as a public sector healthcare institution in 2005.[3] It briefly reopened as a private hospital in April 2008, but after Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan became the main provider of healthcare in the area in October 2010,[4] the hospital got into financial difficulties and ceased trading in May 2012.[5]
