Mt. Gay Hospital was built in 1986 – 1987 to accommodate patients suffering from Mental Illness and as the hub of the Mental Health Services in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. It should be noted that this new facility became a reality following the destruction of the old facility at Richmond Hill during the U.S led intervention of October 25th, 1983. The facility occupies five buildings.
- The administrative block
- Ward Block C & D
- Dining Room & Occupational Therapy
- The Kitchen/store room
The facility was built to accommodate 80 beds, however, due to the influx of patients the number of beds was increased to 100.
Complimentary to this facility is a 20 bed acute psychiatric unit known as Rathdune which is located on the grounds of the Mt. Gay Hospital. This is managed by the General Hospital as one of the specialty areas. It is also the main admission unit for all patients needing psychiatric treatment.
