Fever Hospitals in Ireland, 1780, 1797-1806
Northwest Independent Scholars Association, Portland (OR), United States
Accounts of the “fever hospital movement” in 18th and 19th century Britain have failed to address the movement in Ireland. Although purpose-built Irish fever hospitals both predated and outnumbered their English counterparts, the few scholarly secondary accounts of Irish medical reform during this period do not give much consideration to this topic. Between 1780 and 1835, over 70 of these centres were founded in cities such as Limerick, Belfast, Cork, or Dublin. These institutions deserve more attention from historians.
