The hospital has its origins in the Harrogate General Hospital on Knaresborough Road which was completed in 1932.[1] It joined the National Health Service in 1948.[1]

In the 1970s work began to build a modern replacement facility on Lancaster Park Road.[1] The first phase, which consisted of an accident and emergency department, some laboratories and a few wards, was opened by Princess Margaret in January 1975.[1] The second phase - which also accommodated services transferring from the Royal Baths Hospital and the Scotton Hospital as well as several smaller hospitals in the area - was fully completed in 1998.[2] The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the site later that year to celebrate the completion of the hospital and to conduct the official opening of the Strayside wing.[2]

The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Cancer Centre was completed in 2014 and Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall made an official visit to it in 2016.[1]
