The hospital was opened to patients on the second of December 1984. There were beds for thirty-two patients and 2 mother/child rooms.
Built in a clearing in Methley Park Wood along a drive leading from Methley Lane, this was one of the main entrances to Methley Hall and here, adjoining the drive and Methley Lane, stood the North Lodge. The old drive went straight up through the deerpark to the courtyard of Methley Hall.
The hospital also provides a day unit, operating theatre, out-patient services, radiology and physiotherapy facilities. One wing became a convalescent or geriatric unit in 1986.
