Struck by two major disasters: Hurricane Hugo in September 1989 and the volcanic natural disaster in July 1995

Hospital relocation

Since 1996 Glendon Hospital was relocated to a temporary base in St John’s School, this is because the island was struck by two major disasters: Hurricane Hugo in September 1989 and the volcanic natural disaster which started in July 1995. To date this is still case.

The picture shows the hospital in December 1996 covered by volcanic ash.

It is the aim of the ‘Helping Hands for Glendon’ charity to bring awareness of the needs of Glendon Hospital. It is our mission to contribute to the health and well-being for the people on island of Montserrat who are in need of medical assistance, this is by helping to enhance and improve the existing service making it more self-sufficient.

Temporary use of school as the hospital

A temporary Hospital has been established at St John’s School from April 1996 and is still being used.
