    Freeport Hospital first began as a tuberculosis sanatorium. Following medical advances and altered treatment of tuberculosis after World War II, Freeport began admitting chronic care and rehabilitation patients. It was the first facility in the province to initiate a move into this direction of care. During the 1960s, the need for chronic care beds continued to grow resulting in the addition of more beds, and by 1970 the Freeport Sanatorium became Freeport Hospital.
