Following the donation by Miss Frances Ellis of some property in Hayle to the Congregation of the Daughters of the Cross of Liege in 1904, the Daughters of the Cross established a convent in The Downes, Miss Ellis's former manor house, and a hospital on an adjacent part of the site in 1913.
After the Daughters of the Cross experienced some financial difficulties paying for the running of the hospital, the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust acquired the hospital from the Daughters of the Cross in November 2003. The convent became The Downes Residential Care Home at the same time.
