Medical character:
1887 ? - 1939

Isolation, Infectious diseases
Just before the end of the 19th century Northfleet Urban District Council built a smallpox hospital with 6 beds a mile or so to the north of the Gravesend Sanatorium.

Not much is known about this Hospital, but it probably received smallpox patients until the River Hospitals (Long Reach, Orchard and Joyce Green) opened in the 1900s.

The Hospital continued to be available for infectious diseases patients, as necessary, until the outbreak of WW2 in 1939.

Present status (March 2012)

The Hospital buildings were eventually demolished and the site became a recreation ground until the area was redeveloped for new housing.
