In 1887 a small hospital was built at Tyntyla to accommodate patients with infectious diseases. Between 1897 and 1938 the hospital was gradually expanded. In 1948 with the introduction of the National Health Service the hospital was taken over by the Pontypridd and Rhondda Hospital Management Committee. By 1958 the hospital had 118 beds for the isolation and treatment of infectious diseases, tuberculosis and chest cases. The hospital closed in November 1991.
