When the hospital opened in 1896 it had a bed complement of 540, this rose to a peak of 830 in 1904 but had decreased to 530 by 1909. Although primarily a psychiatric hospital, Gartloch operated a 50 bed tuberculosis sanatorium from 1902 which closed after World War II. Gartloch Hospital closed on its centenary in 1996. The Grade A listed building is now being converted into flats.
