Records of Waddon Hospital (formerly Borough Isolation Hospital)

  • WAD
  • Collection
  • 1930 - 1983

Registers of admission of Waddon Hospital. Some indexed. The building of an infectious diseases hospital was first promulgated in 1890, and in December 1893 pressure increased when permission was refused for the construction of a fever hospital at Grange Wood. This was especially important since in the period 1885 - 90 Croydon had become notorious for its high incidence of epidemic diseases. The hospital opened on 6 June 1896 and was extended in 1900 and 1911. The name was changed to"Waddon Hospital" in 1945, and as the incidence of infectious diseases decreased, the hospital became used for the care of the elderly and pioneering eye operations. In this latter use the hospital became internationally renowned since many of the procedures were filmed as teaching aids. In 1981 large scale bed-closures were proposed in the borough in the light of Government spending cuts, simultaneous with the opening of the new District Hospital and Waddon Hospital was one of the victims. There was little opposition, since the hospital was recognised to be obsolescent. The hospital finally closed in 1984, and the site was given over to residential development in 1991. Croydon Local Studies Library holds several photographs of Waddon Hospital (Photo Ref: 362 Waddon), also a printed report on a proposed new Epidemic Hospital by Leonard Wilde (Ref: pS70 (362) CRO) and an invitation card for the opening of the hospital in 1896 (Ref: pS70 (362) CRO)
