JERSEY GENERAL HOSPITAL

Jersey General Hospital, located in Saint Helier, is the sole hospital on the island of Jersey. In 1765, the hospital was founded. Jersey General Hospital has been a hospital poorhouse since 1793, and it also operated as a lunatic asylum until St Saviour's Hospital opened in 1868. In 1859, a fire largely damaged the structure.

KNOW THE LOCATION

The Bailiwick of Jersey is the official name for the island of Jersey, which is located between the northern and southern coasts of France. Jersey is a British overseas territory. As a Crown Dependency area, it is formally part of the British Islands. As a result, Jersey is self-governing and autonomous, with its own legal, administrative, and fiscal systems. 

Jersey is the place to go to have a true island experience, complete with unique people, cuisine, places to visit, history, and opportunities to hear a variety of island stories. The people of the islands are also recognised for their love of festivals, celebrations, and sports. Jersey has a multi-layered history, which is why there are so many museums and galleries on the island.
