Biographical / Historical

Founded in 1929 by John Vert of Pendleton, Oregon as a gift to his native town. Between 1935 and 1940 a maternity section was added. In 1948 it became part of the Board of Management of East Lothian Hospitals under the South Eastern Regional Hospital Board. In 1974, it became part of the North Lothian District of Lothian Health Board when it ceased to be a maternity hospital. Finally it served as an annexe to Herdmanflat Hospital for psycho-geriatric patients.
