This chapter is concerned with the relationship between large-scale warfare and the establishment of military hospitals in Flanders and Ireland in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. It reflects on the work of Irish medics in the employment of Spain before focusing particular attention on the military hospital at Mechelen. The significance of the field hospital set up by the Spanish at Castlehaven on the southern coast of Ireland is also assessed.
