Hahnemann Homeopathic Hospital

The French chateau style of the Hahnemann Homeopathic Hospital was designed as an ornate advert for the fashionable medical practice of the day. It was purpose built in 1887 and generously equipped and donated to the city by Henry Tate, head of the sugar refining firm and founder of the Tate Gallery. Although an advocate, Tate decreed that the hospital should not be restricted to homeopathy, but should also include facilities for surgery, gynaecology etc… ‘the great medical truths of today’. It closed as a hospital in 1975.  Samuel Hahnemann was a German Physician, known as the creator of homeopathy.
