More Info →Operating theatre, Northcote Hospital, Grey Street

The operating theatre of Northcote hospital is seen here just after the completion of the 1944 renovations. It was originally built about 1904 for Mrs Freeman, for use as a private hospital. The improvements of 1944 was financed by Miss Flower, designed by Mr R Thorrold-Jaggard and constructed by the McMillan brothers. When it reopened in late 1944 the hospital was described as one of the most up-to-date private hospitals in the country. It was run by the Northcote Trust from 1970-1982 when it was sold to the Southern Cross Hospital Trust.
