In a joint building programme carried out by University College Dundee and the Eastern Regional Hospital Board, work on constructing the new teaching hospital at Ninewells, Dundee was begun in 1964. The foundation stone for Ninewells was laid by Lord Hughes of Hawkhill on 9th September 1965. Ninewells Medical School began to be occupied in 1973.. The hospital was officially opened by the Queen Mother on 23rd October 1974.
Located on a site of nearly 200 acres, the buildings at Ninewells, from the Dundee College of Nursing to the Maternity Department stand on a sloping parkland site with views across the River Tay. Ward units were planned on the 'race-track' principle, each unit having 48 beds in two wards of 24 beds. Ninewells was built to accommodate 800 beds and a staff of around 4,000. Ninewells Hospital cost around £10.5 million to construct.
The hospital has nursing and research links with the University of Dundee and is managed by NHS Tayside. The associated Medical School is a centre for research and the combined complex is the largest in the U.K.
