Abstract: Celebrating 50 years of care at Gosford District Hospital from 1945 - 1995. This book contains the history of the hospital recounting the demand for a hospital during 1905 until 1945 due to the rapidly expanding population of Gosford and surrounding suburbs. On the 26th May 1945 Gosford District Hospital was officially opened and despite being already too small for the population, the Nurses and Sisters at Gosford District Hospital did their best to keep up with the demand. As the years went on, the hospital continued to expand and renovate both structurally and internally to support the community through services such as the Pink Ladies, Blood Bank, Brisbane Water Ambulance Service, District Nurses Service and the Hospital Auxiliary. Renovations were divided into three main stages, each dramatically expanding Gosford District Hospital and new hospitals were built in the area. Highlighted within this book are the individual medical staff, people, volunteers and nurses who helped create Gosford District Hospital into what it is today and the images of the ever evolving hospital and staff who make up Central Coasts' largest hospital. Second image - Signatures of end-papers collected by Margaret Allen between 1995 - 2021. Margaret Allen retired 27 April 2022.
