Denbighshire Infirmary was founded in 1807 and was the first institution of its kind in Wales. Initially it was a voluntary hospital and relied on the generous donations and subscriptions of the local people and churches. In 1948 the National Health Service was formed and Denbighshire Infirmary ceased to be a voluntary hospital. It became the largest of nineteen hospitals and clinics under the control of the newly formed Clwyd and Deeside Hospital Management Committee. In 1980 it was designated as a Community Hospital and celebrated it’s bi-centenary in 2007 with a visit from Princess Anne.
