Tower Hospital Rainhill

This is a picture of my Paternal Grand Father Private Alfred Barton at a Convalescent Hospital, Tower in Rainhill, Liverpool. Have looked through the list of hospitals on this site but there is no mention of it. This post card shows them outside the entrance hall and looking at pictures from what is now a Private School it is definitely the same place. I would be interested if there was more information on the Hospital.
