    Arson attack on Bryn Seiont hospital

    Apr 7 2011

    ARSON was the cause of a blaze which destroyed an annex of a former hospital currently being converted into a £4m dementia centre, fire chiefs have confirmed.

    The fire broke out after 9pm at the old Ysbyty Bryn Seiont in Caernarfon.

    Flames ripped through a section at the rear of the former community hospital, completely gutting the building.

    The Pant Road site was bought by the Wrexham-based care organisation in 2009.

    It is in the process of being developed into a dementia and nursing centre, called Canolfan Gofal Bryn Seiont.

    The former Ysbyty Bryn Seiont was formed in 1914 as a sanatorium.

    It was managed by the Caernarfon and Anglesey Hospital Management Committee since the 1948 NHS Act and treated patients with tuberculosis, which was a scourge of quarrymen in the Caernarfon district during the 1930.

    Following a local government reorganisation in 1974 the site fell under the control of Gwynedd District Health Authority, and then North West Wales NHS Trust from 1999.

    Bryn Seiont later became a hospital offering palliative care by Macmillan nurses for cancer patients and then a centre used by the Blood Transfusion Service and a base for ambulances.

    In the 1990s, however, the health authority decided it was “unsuitable for modern inpatient healthcareâ€￾ and it eventually closed in 2004 despite local opposition, with services moved to Ysbyty Eryri nearby.
