The hospital was established when a private house, previously owned by the Cooper family, was converted into a tuberculosis sanatorium in May 1915. It joined the National Health Service in 1948. Many of the older buildings were subsequently demolished and the site was redeveloped as a geriatric hospital with the new facilities being officially opened by the Princess Royal in 1961. Additional wards were added in 1974. After services had transferred to Barnsley Hospital, Mount Vernon hospital closed in December 2017. The site was subsequently sold to Orion Homes to facilitate residential development.
