HistoryEdit

The facility, which was designed by Thomas S. Tait in the Art Deco style, opened as the Paisley Infectious Diseases Hospital in 1936.[2][3] The hospital joined the National Health Service in 1948 and eventually closed in 2005.[4] The site was subsequently developed by Kier Group with many of the historic buildings being converted for residential use as Hawkhead Village.[5]
