My ex got really nasty food poisoning in indonesia and was put in there upon her return to Glasgow. This must have been 1995 or 6. Most of it was already shut then, but a couple of wards remined open.
Administrative History: Opened in 1900 as a Glasgow Corporation infectious diseases hospital, Ruchill initially had 440 beds. By 1915 272 beds had been added for tuberculosis patients. It had 1,000 beds when it was absorbed into the National Health Service in 1948, under the Glasgow Northern Hospitals Board of Management. Ruchill was placed in the Northern District of the Greater Glasgow Health Board in 1974. The number of in-patients was 586 in 1975, 445 in 1980 and 280 in 1990. The hospital's scope changed after 1960 as young chronic sick, geriatric and psychiatric patients were catered for whilst tuberculosis and other infectious disease patients became few in number. Ruchill Hospital was closed in 1998.
No wonder the buildings have such a nasty atmosphere... 100 years of misery , death, loneliness and isolation.
