The King Edward Memorial Hospital, a facility in the Riverview area of Winnipeg for the treatment of tuberculosis, was designed by local architect George Gaspar Teeter, and built between 1911 and 1912 by the Shepley Construction Company.
A one-storey brick building near the hospital was built in 1912 as a laundry. Its use ended in 1970 but it remains the oldest structure on the hospital grounds.
The hospital was demolished and replaced by buildings of the Riverview Health Centre.
