The building was formerly a cottage hospital serving the town and local area. When the Health Authority decided to close the hospital in 1993 the local community set up a campaign to save it. The general feeling in Machynlleth and the Dyfi Valley was that the Machynlleth, Corris & District Hospital should be returned to the people of the locality whose forefathers built and was still regarded with great affection.

The campaigners, however did not wish to save the cottage hospital buildings just out of sentiment, they believed that the building was ideal for conversion to provide desperately needed social health care for all the Dyfi Valley residents. The Machynlleth and District Care Centre Trust was therefore formed to set about saving and restoring the building to provide local social health care facilities.

The Trust made a formal bid to buy the building from Powys Health Care Trust but this was rejected and the building plus its surrounding land sold to a private developer, who later agreed to revise his plans and sell the building to the Trust at a realistic price. Months of hard work followed raising funds to adapt the building to its new role of providing a high standard of community based care and facilities.

The Care Centre opened 1999 and was officially opened by Jane Hutt A.C. (Health & Social Secretary) later that year.

The centre is now open Monday to Friday 9am / 5pm and provides excellent facilities for the local area and its population.

We also have a few rooms available to rent out to local groups or a small business at reasonable rates. Please contact the Care Centre for more details.
