In June work will begin on transforming four of the A-listed buildings at Woolmanhill into a 52-bedroom “boutique” hotel.
And on Monday, the last services at the historic hospital will be moved to the city’s Woodend facility.
To mark the end of an era, we took a look through our archives and found ten pictures that depict life at this 268-year-old establishment.
1) When Woolmanhill first opened it was as Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, before the complex was built at Foresterhill. Here is a ward in 1889.
2) The hospital’s Nightingale Ward in the 1900s
3) An Automated field detector being handed over to the hospital’s eye department in 1982
4) A patient being examined in the hospital’s eye clinic in 1985
5) Graduates from the school of Physiotherapy in 1986
6) The School of Physiotherapy raised £360 through six-a-side football for charities in 1989
7) New wheelchair demonstration area opens at Woolmanhill in 1990
8) A patient has her side vision tested at the eye clinic at Woolmanhill in 1985
