The Ingham Hospital was established by proclamation dated 7 August 1885 to provide hospital and medical services, and was administered by a voluntary Committee. Following the passing of the "Hospitals Act 1923", Committees were gradually replaced and administration of the hospital was transferred to the Townsville Hospitals Board from 1925 and from 1954 the Ingham Hospital Board.

Under the "Health Services Act 1991" the Ingham Hospital became the responsibility of the Northern Regional Health Authority but from 1996 Authorities were dissolved and Health Service Districts with managers and District Councils to monitor services were created. In 2007 the Ingham Hospital became part of the Townsville Health Service District.The hospital provides medical and hospital care including outpatient clinic, secondary level acute care, and visiting specialist services.
