HISTORY

The Dudley Guest Hospital boasts a rich history and has played a prominent role in Dudley life over the years.

The original buildings on site began life in 1849 as almshouses and were built on behalf of the Earl of Dudley as accommodation for the local limestone miners who were blinded whilst working on his estate. Sadly the accommodation was not used and remained vacant for some years. In 1867, Joseph Guest, a prosperous nail worker invested a significant sum towards the creation of a hospital for Dudley. The unused almshouses were selected as the ideal site and the Earl of Dudley paid for all alterations, furniture and medical equipment.

The ‘Guest Hospital’, named in memory of Joseph Guest, was officially opened on 25 October 1871 by the Earl and Countess of Dudley. From its first four admissions in the first week of opening, the hospital grew rapidly with the addition of a Children’s Ward around 1875, an infectious diseases facility plus separate male and female operating rooms, so that by 1896 a total of 736 patients had received treatment.

The hospital thrived from the early 1900s onwards with the addition of facilities and services. From the opening of an Eye Department in 1904, the hospital then made significant advances so that by the 1920s it was in a position to introduce specialist care departments.

During World War One the hospital was left with only one surgeon, Mr. M.A. Messiter, at the helm as many of the staff had been called up for active service. The Second World War saw the bed capacity increased to 246 to accommodate air-raid casualties as well as injured servicemen and women.

Continued progress over the years witnessed improved facilities, new departments and larger wards, many named after key members of staff who worked at the hospital, such as Honorary Surgeons, Mr. M. A. Messiter, Mr. J. N. Sankey and Mr. J. W. Stretton and a long-serving matron Miss. E. M. Mallows. Local dignitaries were not forgotten, with one ward named in honour of the Countess of Dudley, Georgina. The hospital sadly closed its doors in 2007, following in the footsteps of its accident and emergency department, which had closed some years before in 1984.
