All Saints hospital.

In 1939 this would have been known as Dudley Road Hospital or Summerfield Hospital by earlier association with the infirmary attached to the "workhouse" that originally occupied the site.

The workhouse was built in 1852 and included an entrance arch known as the "Archway of Tears", which still exists in 2013. A separate infirmary, called The Birmingham Union Infirmary, was built in 1889 and this was developed to become Dudley Road Hospital. After major development in 2005 was renamed "City Hospital".

The name "All Saints Hospital" is more commonly associated with the fever and mental (asylum) hospitals on the nearby Lodge Road.
