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.
