hi evryone. new here and looking for some information. I was told i was born in the Ross Hospital, Paisley but noone seems to know anything about it, even some Paisley Buddies ive spoken to!! any information about where it was would be most helpful and very gratefully received. Help me settle this arguement plse. i was born in 1972, my name is Ross and i was christened by a minister called Ross - hence the reason the name always stuck in my mind. thanks in advance biggrin.gif

Check here

Ross

Ross Hospital seems to be the Colloquial name for a maternity unit possibly attached to another Hospital in Paisley. Possibly Hawkhead which was built on land previously owned by the Ross Family.

Hi Karidian,

Welcome to the GGBB.

There is a Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow. It is one of the private hospitals and is situated in Crookston. You will find more information if you follow the link:

Ross Hall

I hope this helps.

EDIT! Dexter's post seems the likelier proposition!

Ross Hospital existed at least between 1955 and the the seventies.
Ross Hall was the old Hotel School of the University of Strathclyde and was converted into a private hospital in the eighties. It certainly did not ever operate (excuse the pun) as a maternity unit. Oh and it's not in Paisley.

However other Glasgow Guide members may be interested in its services

Dexter,

Clearly your explanation is the correct one. Unnecassarily labouring the point does not make it more correct. Not to worry, I am sure your link to stress will prove useful. Thanks for your input!

I had 2 of my children in the Ross Hospital in Paisley, it was just opened when my eldest was born, I was taken to Rottenrow first then sent on the Ross, this was 7th October 1956, only a few patients in it, first class treatment, went on to have a son 3 years later also in The Ross Hospital, I know it was near a cemetery because it was winter and snowing and the ambulance went up to the cemetery gates thinking it was the hospital

wub.gif Ross Hospital is still there, but now it seems to be a place where you see consultants. Its off a roundabout on the way to Hillington. My eldest son was born there in 1961, shortly after it opened as a Maternity Hospital. It was very pleasant, being new and shiny with single rooms as well as wards.

Yes Hazel, that is exactly the way I remember the Ross --all nice and shiny--I felt right posh wih my own room, the New Zealand nurse I had Knitted wee bootees and a hat for my daughter Pauline in 1956, can you imagine them doing that now, they seem to be run off their feet.

Hi thgere! Iad to know this is well afta the original posting but i felt i had to get my wee bit in here! lol
I was born in the Ross Hospital in 1969. Its in Hawkhead Road and is still there ut i couldnt say for how long since its abandoned now. It was used as a Maternity Hospital before the new Paisley Maternity was built, before that you were born in Thornhill mostly i think. Catchya all lata xxx x

I was also born at Ross Hospital in Paisley in 1960. I am living in Canada now, but I do still have family there and they tell me that it is still there, but no longer Ross Hospital.

Actually, I lost my Birth Certificate and need to obtain a new one. Can anyone offer me any advice on how to go about that? Please post and email replies to me at damienstar@mts.net

Thanks so much!
