Ninewells Hospital


The foundation stone for Ninewells Hospital and Medical School was laid by Lord Hughes of Hawkhill on 9th September 1965. Ninewells was officially opened by the Queen Mother on 23rd October 1974. The buildings at Ninewells, from the Dundee College of Nursing to the Maternity Department stand on a sloping parkland site with views across the River Tay. Ward units were planned on the 'race-track' principle, each unit having 48 beds in two wards of 24 beds. Ninewells was built to accommodate 800 beds and a staff of around 4,000. The associated Medical School is a centre for research and the combined complex is the largest in the U.K.
