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.
Reflecting on the last 100 years presents a timely opportunity
to reconnect with the past and discover stories about people who
have worked at the hospital during this time.
Many people have shared their stories and pictures of Tauranga
Hospital. These have been made into storyboards and are available
to view along the Main Corridor of Tauranga Hospital.
For the full storyboards, view the Tauranga Hospital Centennial Book.
