The facility was founded as the Liverpool Hahnemann Hospital and Dispensaries in 1887.[1] The hospital building at 42-56 Hope Street, designed by F & G Holme, is an example of the Queen Anne revival style. It is now a Grade II listed building.[2][3] It was the first hospital in the United Kingdom to contain early hydraulic lifts and an innovative heating and ventilation system.[4] It joined the National Health Service in the 1948. Renamed as the Hahnemann Hospital in 1969,[1] it was eventually closed in 1976.[1]
