The Shaughnessy Hospital building was built in 1940 for the Department of National Defence. Also known as Shaughnessy Military Hospital, it served as an important point of care for servicemen injured in the line of duty, and functioned as a residence for many veterans as well as a workplace for nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals. The hospital was also the site of a royal visit in 1951 by Princess Elizabeth and Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
