The hospital has its origins in an infirmary built for the Central Union Workhouse in 1896. After becoming the Manor Hospital in 1928, it expanded through conversion for clinical use of an old nurse's block in the 1930's and of an old recreational hall in the 1960's. A new geriatric block was opened in 1973 and the West Wing was opened by Princess Diana in 1991.
A redevelopment of the site was procured under a Private Finance Initiative contract in 2007. The works, which were designed by Steffian Bradley and carried out by Skanska at a cost of £174 million, were completed in 2010.
