The hospital was founded in 1893 by Mrs Katherine Love, a member of a family of generous local benefactors living on the Hawkhills estate near Easingwold. At first it was known as Easingwold Cottage Hospital but later renamed St Monica's after the mother of the great St Augustus.
In 1948 the hospital was taken over by the state and in April 2011 management of the hospital was transferred to York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.
These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.
Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do. We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here. Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
