Yeppoon Hospital ca.1930
Title Yeppoon Hospital ca.1930
Description When the mining industry which supported a thriving Mt Chalmers community in the early 20th Century collapsed, the hospital which had been built was rendered unnecessary. Through the generosity of the Mt Chalmers community, the building was acquired by the Rockhampton Hospitals Board and in 1917 was relocated to Anzac Parade on the Yeppoon foreshore to serve as a convalescent home. Through the efforts of a local committee, the building was proclaimed a hospital in 1922. It was said to be 'The most ideally situated hospital in Queensland'. Other buildings were added over the years. The hospital was demolished in the 1970's and replaced by a more modern structure which itself was demolished in 2010.
