heritage day cornwall park hospital

We had so much fun sharing our heritage of healing with visitors on Sunday 24th February 2024.

Cornwall Park was successively home to the 39th General United States Army Hospital, National Women’s Hospital and Cornwall Geriatric Hospital. With the help of some amazing community organisations we shared the stories of the pioneering medicine and people who served at these hospitals.

Enjoy these photos from a brilliant day including a group shot of Cornwall Park babies who were in attendance.
