The Library and Museum’s latest exhibition marks the centenary of the opening of the Royal Masonic Hospital.
This first opened in late 1916 to take casualties from the First World War. In 1933 the Hospital opened at a new site at Ravenscourt Park in West London where its award winning Modernist building broke new ground in hospital design.
It then played a role in the Second World War treating over 9,000 personnel. The Hospital and its staff were pioneers of many medical treatments and its nurse training facilities were renowned.
By the late twentieth century the financial and operational challenges faced by the Hospital proved too much and it closed in 1996.
