Croydon was established as gold-mining area in1886 and a medical officer appointed on 21 April 1887. The first hospital patients were admitted in1888. With the end of the gold-mining rush hospital patient numbers decreased, and by the1950s consideration was given to retaining only a cottage hospital. However, new buildings were erected about the late1970s - 1980.

From the 1880s Croydon Hospital provided medical and hospital services including an out-patient clinic. In the 2000s "Croydon Hospital provides services such as Accident and Emergency Care and Primary Health Care in a remote area location in conjunction with the Royal Flying Doctor Service and Allied Health Outreach Services. Dressings, clinical assessments, child health, immunisations, medications, women's health clinics, palliative and post acute services, school screening and health promotion, are examples of some of the services provided."

Hospitals were administered by Committees until gradually replaced by district Boards. Croydon Hospital came under the control of the Normanton Hospitals Board in 1945. From 1996 Croydon Hospital was part of the Tablelands Health Service District, and from 8 Feb 2007, the Cairns and Hinterland Health Service District under a district manager and a Council which monitors services.
