RNH Mtarfa

The Royal Navy Hospital Mtarfa was a United Kingdom naval hospital in Mtarfa, Malta. It was the main hospital for British Forces in the eastern Mediterranean until the British finally left the independent Malta in 1979.

The hospital was commissioned in 1912 as a replacement for the then aging Valletta Hospital. It was used during World War I to hold injured Australian and New Zealand troops from the failed 1915 landings at Gallipoli. It may not have been much of a Hospital at that point, but demand was high and it was convenient for the Mtarfa Naval cemetery. It was expanded enormously during World War II.

At one stage in the 1950's it was named the Sir David Bruce Military Hospital after the doctor who discovered the root cause of Malta Fever or Brucellosis It has now been converted to a state secondary school, named after Sir Temi Zammit, part of St. Nicholas College.
