Description

Located next to Fort Creedy, in the suburb of Peppardville. St. Benedict's Hospital sees no end of activity despite the Fort having it's own on-base facilities.

History

St. Benedict's Hospital has always had a strong relationship with the military and can trace thet relationship all the way back to as far as 1297, when a temporary field hospital was erected for soldiers returning from the crusades. However, the first mention of a permanent structure on this site was referenced by a certain Dr. J Frobisher of the Royal College of Surgeons in one of his books on Georgian Medicine.

"While many towns and villages during the Georgian area lacked suitable public healthcare, the Peppardville Hospital in Malton found itself at the centre of national attention on more then one occasion. It is said George III requested his favourite surgeon, who worked here, whenever he felt a little 'peaky.'"

The hospital was rebuilt in 1909 with the addition of four more wards including an extra operating theater as well as a complete change in decor. During the construction, all patients and staff were transferred to nearby St. Helena's Church. In World War I (and later during World War II) part of the hospital was leased to the war office, along with all the clerical staff that worked to tally and distribute war casualty communications.

From 1914 to the beginning of 1915 the hospital was a veteran recovery hospital and dealt with the first poison gas cases. Then, between 1940 and 1945 the hospital was a psychiatric/training hospital. Up to three medical field units could be trained at any one time. They also helped to deal with the cases of "shell shock" that came back from Europe.
