The Hospital was officially opened on 12 July 1926 by Governor Sir William Campion. It was named after the island in the Aegean Sea used as a Hospital during World War One. It was designed with the intention of providing a home rather than an institution for returned service men, and in this respect reflected the contemporary attitude towards hospital design in the 1920s. Lemnos Hospital is highly significant as a hospital specifically built to service the needs of returned servicemen suffering from mental illness, shell shock, as a result of World War One. The Aleppo pine tree (Pinus halepensis), believed to have been grown from a seed from the trees on the island of Lemnos, is a reminder of the origins of the hospital and is a tribute to those who served during World War One.
