St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital turns 60 in 2018
St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital was built as a living memorial to the men and women of the Australian Armed Forces of World Wars I and II. The ideals of service are honoured and continued at St Andrew’s to this day, in the care given to all of our patients.
The Presbyterian Church established the hospital, opened on 17 May 1958, after more than 10 years of fundraising, land acquisition, hard work and dedication. On 2 June 1958, the Hospital Board of Governors’ chairman, Dr Harold Crawford, performed the hospital's first operation, beginning a proud tradition of clinical excellence that St Andrew’s has maintained ever since.
Between 1958 and today, the hospital has grown and developed – both in size and in the range of procedures that are offered.
To celebrate this significant milestone, we will be holding the following events in May:
St Andrew’s 60 Years’ Commemorative Service
Saturday 19 May
