Lady Davidson Hospital War Memorial

Description

A granite tablet dedicated to those who served in all wars. Set within a memorial garden with accompanying flag staff.

The Lady Davidson Hospital was one of the major repatriation hospitals attending to the needs of returned members of Australia's armed services. The history of the Lady Davidson Hospital spans some 80 years from its humble beginnings as a Red Cross convalescent home for First World War veterans suffering pulmonary tuberculosis and its subsequent transfer to the Repatriation Commission in 1923, to its present day provision of rehabilitation, palliative care and other non-acute care services. In 1997, the Lady Davidson Hospital was divested by the Department of Veteran Affairs and is currently operated by Australian Hospital Care Limited.

The nearby Sphinx Memorial was created by a First World War tuberculosis sufferer from the Lady Davidson Hospital.
