Southmead Hospital is a large
hospital, situated in the northern suburbs of Bristol, England.
The hospital opened in 1902 as a 64 bed
workhousefor poor sick people. By 1911 there were 520 beds.
World War I, the facilities were used as an army hospital. The facilities reverted back to a workhouse in the early 1920s and were then greatly extended to accommodate all the sick poor.
In 1924, the Southmead Infirmary was built and was later renamed Southmead Hospital. The hospital has been greatly expanded and now covers 60 acres.
In 2005 another expansion was planned which will include moving some services from
Frenchay Hospitalto the Southmead site. This will result in Frenchay Hospital being downgraded to a Community Hospital. The project should be finished in 2013.
Southmead is served by local charity
Freewheelers EVS, whose volunteers provide a free-of-charge motorcycle courierservice between Southmead and other hospitals in the area.
