Next Tuesday, on August 10, the Balmain Hosptial will be holding an open day to celebrate its 125th Anniversary of providing health care for the district. The hospital will host the public in a festival full of guided tours, music, food and showbags! Everyone is welcome and it should be a fantastic day.
The hospital began in 1885 to support the growing population of the penninsular. In the beginning, only men could recieve treatment at the hospital, while women still had to commute to the city. This changed when as the hospital grew and changed it's location to Booth St, where it still stands today.
