Administrative / Biographical History
Originally a 39 bed Renfrew County Council maternity hospital, Thornhill Maternity Hospital opened in 1934. It was transferred to the National Health Service in 1948 and was under the Board of Management for Paisley and District Hospitals until 1974 when it was placed in the Renfrew District of Argyll and Clyde Health Board. In 1970 it ceased to function as a maternity unit and began to admit respiratory, gynaecological and psycho-geriatric cases. Thornhill closed in 1986.

The template for the encoded finding aid was developed by Lynda Smart, Assistant Archivist using XMetal Version 2.0 and amended by Victoria Peters, GASHE project manager.
The correspondences between the ISAD(G) elements and the EAD element types, and between EAD element types and MARC fields, were adapted by Pete Johnston, Glasgow University Archives & Business Records Centre, and Paul Watry and Julie Allinson, Liverpool University, Department of Special Collections and Archives, from those recommended in the EAD Application Guidelines Version 1.0 .
Amendments were made by Lynda Smart, Assistant Archivist, Glasgow Unversity Archive Services to update the correspondences between the EAD and ISAD(G) elements so the EAD elements correspond to ISAD(G) Second Edition. Amendments were made by Victoria Peters to incorporate the EAD 2002 changes.
