Ross Hospital was founded in 1956 and it closed in 1973.

This from the National Archives of Scotland.

Hi Ross, I worked in Ross Hospital, Paisley in 1967. It was a small maternity hospital which was part of Rottenrow (Royal Maternity Hospital, Glasgow). It dealt with low risk deliveries although it had facilities for doing emergency caesarian sections. Any sick babies were transferred to Rottenrow, paediatric unit. It was a small, friendly place to work. Patients seemed to like it too. There were 3 floors ,mostly single rooms and it had nice gardens around it. These small units were all phased out and patients had to go bedelivered in the large maternity hospitals. I think the building is still there alhough I cannnot remember what is is used for now. Hope that is of some help.

I was supposed to go to Ross hospital to deliver my first baby in January 1961, but he was late - 15 days late! so when we 'phoned to say he was on the way there were no beds. They apologized and asked if I would go to Rottenrow instead, as if I had a choice!!

Hi. I was born at the Ross Hospital in Paisley in December 1960. My mother went into labour in Maryhill, but Rottenrow was full. I was nearly born under the Clyde apparently.
I got married in 1984 and went looking for the hospital where i was born. We found a building and it said Ross House. It seemed to be a private hospital. I was told it was a psychiatric hospital, which others found amusing, but I'm not sure about this. polly

Hi there!

I can confirm that Ross Hospital was named after the owners of the estate. In 1946, when I was there, it was the Hawkhead Infectious Disease Hospital. It was located just before the now removed railway bridge which crossed hawkhead road at its junction with the old barhead road. It became a maternity hospital sometime after there was no need for a specific ID hospital. As a matter of interest, during WW2, there was an AA battery located on top of the hill across from the junction with Hawkhead Rd. and an Italian POW camp nearby. When the guns were fired it scared the livung s... out of the patients and broke not a few windows!!!

I was born in Ross Hospital in 1957. My mother said it was because the hospital in Glasgow was too busy. I prefer to think it was because Ross hospital took only the creme de la creme cool.gif

Interesting stuff here, I have been researching for a personal biography I'm writing for my kids. I found the location of the hospital at the web address below and was able to recognise the end wall of the three tier building that formerly housed the maternity unit. The Ross, where I was born in 1958, was a seperate unit from Paisley ID hopital. I know this as I was admitted with gastro-enteritis to the ID as a child in 1964/65 and it was located next door to the Ross hospital in a northerly direction heading down hawkhead road.

It was the former home of the Argyll and Clyde health Board until it closed down.
