The Montfield Hospital is a health facility in the burgh of Lerwick, Shetland, Scotland. It is managed by NHS Shetland.

History[edit]

The facility, which was designed by P. Thompson, was opened as the Zetland County Sanatorium in November 1928.[1] After joining the National Health Service in 1948, it was renamed Montfield Hospital in 1962 and was converted into a geriatric facility in 1983.[1] A small care home was established on the ground floor in 2010.[2] The headquarters of the NHS Shetland Board, which had previously been based at Brevik House in Lerwick, was established on the upper floor in 2013.[3]
