The structure was built in the 1840s as a workhouse for the poor of the region. It was later converted for use as a tuberculosis hospital and as a mental home, and eventually used for rehabilitative services and care of the elderly. In 2011, it catered to one hundred patients, though this figure is reportedly due to be reduced by 10% in 2012.
