The original Foxhall Hospital (the King Edward Memorial Sanatorium) was built in 1912 as an isolation hospital for people with lung disorders, particularly TB sufferers. After it closed down in 1975 it was used as a centre for displaced Vietnamese "boat people" in the early 1980's.
Suffolk Coastal District Council planners agreed to the site being used again as a hospital-type facility after rejecting housing proposals a number of times. Demolition of the original hospital buildings started early in 1990 when developers began a project to turn the building and its 19 acre site into a 58 bedroom private hospital.
