Old Photograph Gerard Hospital Monifieth Scotland
Old photograph of the Gerard Hospital in Monifieth near Dundee, Scotland. The Reverend James Gerard Young, born 1821, died 1899, was minister of the Parish of Monifieth from 1855 to 1899. The Gerard Trust was set up under his will for the establishment of a cottage hospital in Monifieth. The Gerard Cottage Hospital opened in October 1905 and was operated by a Trust until July 1948, when it was transferred to the Eastern Regional Hospital Board. By 1970 the hospital had been closed and the building altered and extended to become St Mary's Residential Home for the Elderly run by sisters of that Order and owned by the Diocese of Dunkeld.
