Hol­ly­wood open­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

HOL­LY­WOOD Pri­vate Hos­pi­tal un­veiled its new­est wing late last month, named af­ter the old­est sur­viv­ing World War II nurse Anne Leach.

Ms Leach (101), who at­tended the open­ing, worked at the Ned­lands Hos­pi­tal when it was the 110th Aus­tralian Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal in the 1940s.

Health Min­is­ter Kim Hames re­vealed the Anne Leach Wing plaque.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic hos­pi­tal,” Mr Hames said.

“There has been crit­i­cism say­ing the pub­lic sec­tor doesn’t want pri­vate or­gan­i­sa­tions run­ning hos­pi­tals but peo­ple love the care and value they get; it’s sec­ond to none.

“There’s a great re­la­tion­ship be­tween pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors in health.”

As part of a $74 mil­lion in­fra­struc­ture pro­gram, the new wing in­cludes six op­er­at­ing the­atres, 330 beds and a kitchen.
