It is a Community Hospital with 22 beds providing for GP Acute, Palliative Care, Rehabillitation and assessment and also a 24-hour minor injury unit.

History[edit]

On 28 April 1877 a meeting was called by Mr William Longmore to consider a proposal to build a cottage hospital for the parish of Keith. By January 1879 the committee had raised £2,185 and decided to start building the hospital, to be called "The Turner Memorial Hospital" in memory of Dr Robert Turner. Many changes and expansions have occurred following the original opening in 1880. The most notable dates have been the addition of the two Kynoch Wards in 1893, and the extensions and renovations completed in 1926 and 1992.[2]

The hospital had links with Keith Community Radio which first broadcast in 1986.[3]
