Bellevue History

Bellevue Hospital, as it is known today is situated on 123 acres of land on Windward Road, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. It came into existence as a separate institution for the care and treatment of Mental Disease in 1861. Prior to this, it was connected to the Kingston Public Hospital and was known as the Jamaica Lunatic Asylum. About this time reforms were taking place throughout Europe.
