Hillside Home, Perth was founded in 1876 for those suffering with incurable diseases. In 1883, it moved to a site on Dundee Road, Perth and became known as Hillside Home. In 1888 a building was provided for patients suffering from consumption (TB). In 1901 Barnhill Sanatorium in Perth opened. This was probably the building referred to as a new hospital for those with consumption and was built in connection to Hillside. In 1908 the property adjacent to Hillside and accomodation was provided for the treatment of phtisis. Hillside closed in 1997 and was demolished in 2007 to make way for a housing development.
