  Queen Mary Hospital, Hanmer   (CAWS)
1916 - 2003


Queen Mary Hospital, Hanmer, began life as a returned services hospital for World War I veterans. Although this function continued to cover WWII, post War it increasingly focussed on treating mental health, particularly alcohol and drug addiction. As part of the continuing health restructuring of the 1990s, and after several iterations, it became a private institution. It closed in 2003.
