Description: "Hospital by 1980?: Prediction by Minister" details the dedication of 27 acres for a 100 bed hospital at Kanwal by 1980. Infront of a crowd of 2,000 State Health Minister, Mr R. O. Healey spoke about the promised hospital and the help for the hospital auxiliaries of Wyong, Tuggerah Lakes and Entrance-Long Jetty. Guests included Mr H. F. Jensen (MLA for Munmorah), Mr K. O'Connell (MLA for Peats) and Mrs Jean O'Connell, Cr Farrell (Shire President) and Mrs Farrell, Mr Norm Hawley (president of Wyong Chamber of Commerce), Mr Arthur Mollett (Chamber of Commerce Hospital Trust Chairman), Mr Max Brown (Wyong Hospital Committee chairman) and Dr Max Thomas (Tuggerah Lakes Hospital Committee Chairman). The Wyong District Hospital Committee has raised around $28,000 over 16 years for the hospital to be. Mr Keith O'Connell, MLA for Peats, said he hoped that the Kanwal hospital would not contend with the same problems that Woy Woy Hospital have come across as it has no resident doctore and cannot treat serious casualty cases.
