The Municipal Hospital building was founded in 1857 by King Otto and was based on designs by the Danish Architect Christian Hansen.
In 1871 the first section was completed, which included the façade and half of the side wings.
On 1/1/1872 it started operating under the name "Municipal Hospital of Patras".
From 1889 to 1897, building infrastructure was expanded and added with donations and initiatives of the brothers Koryllos and I. Giannopoulos, T. Efstathopoulos and K. Papastathopoulos, while in 1914 the church of Agios Charalambos was built.
In 1924 the complex was renovated, fenced and a garden was created at the expense of Chr. Κορύλλου.
The buildings that make up the Municipal Hospital followed the style of neoclassicism with simple forms and without sophistication in morphological elements, following the original design of Hansen.
In 1959, the Hospital came under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Social Welfare and was renamed the General State Hospital "O Agios Andreas" and in 1972 it transferred its functions to the new Hospital.
In 1984 the ownership of the building in the Municipality of Patras is recognized and since 1989 work has begun on the restoration of the tiled roof and facades in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture.
Since 1994, services of the cultural sector of the Municipality have been installed in renovated buildings on the northwest side, while the works in the front wing "Hansen", which is being transformed into a space for exhibitions and cultural events, are being completed.
In the atrium of the Hospital are hosted during the summer cultural events (concerts, performances, speech events) thus utilizing the building and highlighting its aesthetic and monumental value.
