Tauranga Hospital Centenary

Tauranga Hospital was officially opened on 6 March 1914, just under five months before the outbreak of World War I, by the Inspector-General of Hospitals Dr T.H.A. Valentine. When it was first opened it it had a live-in staff of four, a cow for milk supply, and a horse for staff transport.
