    Opened 1889, Closed 1996

    Gartloch Hospital is located on the Gartloch Road near the village of Gartcosh. It was closed in 1996 after serving patients for 100 years as a hospital. It is now in the process of being redeveloped into a "luxury village".

    Gartloch Timeline:
    1889: Gartloch Estate was bought by the City of Glasgow for nearly £8,600 for the Glasgow District Lunacy Board to build an asylum for the poor people of the city.

    1896: The first patients were admitted. 540 beds.

    1899: The average number of patients resident in the asylum during the year was 465 and comprised 236 males and 229 females.

    1902: A tuberculosis sanitorium was opened. It closed after World War II. During the War, Gartloch was transformed into an Emergency Medical Services hospital. Psychiatric patients were transferred to other hospitals and a number of “temporary” hutted wards built.

    1904: 830 beds.

    1948: Gartloch joined the National Health Service and was placed under the Board of Management for Glasgow North-Eastern Mental Hospitals.

    1974: When the Greater Glasgow Health Board was created in 1974 Gartloch was placed within the Eastern District.

    1990: 530 beds.

    1993: Gartloch was under the Greater Glasgow Community and Mental Health Services NHS Trust.

    1996: Gartloch Hospital closed.

    2003: Development work to turn Gartloch into a luxury village begins.
