By 1818 there were clinics but no hospitals in Monaco, the Prince Honoré V had the idea of building a large modern hospital in the west part of Monaco, in the district of The Salines. It was Prince Albert I, who made this project happen between the 19th and 20th century. The hospital was inaugurated in 1902 as the Monaco Hospital, by that time the hospital had 120 beds.
In 1949, with the accession to the throne of Prince Rainier III, a service of pediatrics was created: The house Rainier III.
The Government expanded and re-founded the Hospital in September, 1958 with the opening of the Polyclinic, the new hospital complex was renamed The Princess Grace Hospital Centre, in honor of Princess Grace of Monaco, always committed with humanitarian projects, of solidarity and health. Coincidentally, Princess Grace died there as a result from injuries caused by a car accident in 1982.
