Rookwood Hospital celebrates 100 years


Rookwood Hospital will be celebrating its 100th anniversary during 2018. To mark this special occasion, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (UHB) will be hosting a series of events for staff, patients, visitors and the local community. Rookwood Hospital is a rehabilitation hospital in Llandaff, Cardiff.


It is one


of only twelve spinal rehab units in the UK. It is also a regional neuro- rehabilitation hospital as well as housing a geriatric day hospital, a geriatric intermediate care facility and a geriatric medicine rehabilitation ward. Cardiff’s Parkinson’s Disease services is also based at Rookwood Hospital. The Artifi cial Limb and Appliance Service, The Electronic Assistive


Technology Service, Headway, South Wales Mobility and Driving Assessment Service and Rookwood Sound hospital radio are all based at Rookwood Hospital. Rookwood Hospital plays an integral part in Llandaff community life, with local residents working there, and staff, patients and visitors using the town’s facilities.


Rookwood has had an interesting and varied past. Rookwood was built in 1886 by the late Colonel Sir Edward Hill as his home, and subsequently Lady Hill, lived there until 1917. The name ‘Rookwood’ was given to the house by Lady Hill during its construction. Before her marriage she was brought to see the building and


was asked to fi nd a suitable name for it. When she came to the property a number of rooks were fl ying overhead and she immediately thought of ‘Rookwood’, and decided that should be the name.


In 1918, Rookwood was taken over for use as a convalescent home. At the end of the First World War it was purchased by Sir Lawrence Phillips and presented to the ministry as a home for Welsh paraplegic pensioner cases. Following this it was continued to be used as a hospital by Cardiff and Vale UHB. In 1932, after building works had taken place to increase capacity, it became a general hospital. During the 1970s and ‘80s Rookwood


had eight wards caring for people with spinal injuries, brain injury,


stroke,


multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.


In 2001 the Spinal unit moved, utilising wards 4 and 5, which then provided 31 beds for spinal injuries and fi ve beds for amputees. To this day, Rookwood is predominantly used as a rehabilitation hospital. The Health Board launched the 100 year celebration on


Tuesday 16


January. For
