    The first purpose built hospital to serve Mansfield and Mansfield Woodhouse area was constructed in 1877, that building later became a public house. From 1882 a cottage hospital, offering a mere two beds, was situated on Union street, also known as The Lawn. With diseases such as typhoid, smallpox, tuberculosis and diphtheria being commonplace, there was a great need for more hospital beds to accommodate the increasing population of Mansfield. This new hospital was opened in 1890, and was known as The Mansfield General Hospital and it provided five beds. The opening ceremony was conducted on 27th October 1890 by the Duke of Portland

    With the rapid growth of industry in the town, so the population increased. By 1928 it was approaching 48,000 while the Mansfield General had grown from it's modest 5 beds of 1890 to 108. In 1950 the Mansfield General celebrated a further extension. This was a new ward block which was officially opened by Sir Eric Sykes. This new block provided a further 60 beds.

    With the majority of the services being transferred to the new Kings Mill Hospital over a period of years, sadly the Mansfield General closed it's doors in 1992.

    Locals have been campaigning to get the hospital demolished at best they have had the site cleaned up after getting the council involved "On 20th October 09, it served a "section 215" notice under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, which requires the owner of land in such a state of disrepair that it is affecting residents' quality of life to improve its condition." Mr Adam, who bought the site about 15 years ago, confirmed he had received the notice. The site still stands there are no plans for redevelopment and it appears Mr Adam is trying to sell up...
