Care, compassion, community
70th anniversary of the Heildelberg Repatriation Hospital 4 March 2011 - 31 July 2011

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital the Shrine developed this exhibition featuring memorabilia and images from the hospital archive as well as historical images from the Australian War Memorial. Through its proud history the hospital emerged as a centre for critical care with a sense of community that has nurtured and rehabilitated shattered people, served as a centre for innovation in the treatment of war injuries and mental illness and as a teaching hospital for the nursing and medical professions. Heidelberg Hospital has also evolved as an important commemorative site.
