History

The hospital, which opened in 1906, was originally known as Purdysburn Fever Hospital and later Montgomery House, before being renamed Belvoir Park Hospital in the 1960s. Throughout its lifespan, the hospital was the main regional centre for oncology, offering radiotherapy and chemotherapy. treatments.[1] In 1983, the hospital was the first in the province to take delivery of a CT scanner. The hospital's Gerard Lynch Centre held many cancer support groups, in order to aid both sufferers and their families.[2]

Closure

Belvoir Park Hospital closed in March 2006, when cancer treatment, including radiotherapy, was transferred to Belfast City Hospital.
