The Wauchope District Memorial Hospital, originally known as the Hastings Memorial Hospital, was erected in memory of those who served. Renovations and extensions to the hospital were opened in 1977.

Forty citizens, including seven ladies, attended the public meeting held on Monday night last at Wauchope to discuss the establishment of a district hospital at that centre, the shire president, Cr. R. Gamack, pre siding. After a general discussion, on the motion of Messrs. Walker and Reid, it was then unanimously resolved — 'That this public meeting of residents of the Hastings district request the government to establish a hospital in Wauchope, to be known as the Hastings Memorial Hospital, and that we guarantee support for same.' A committee was formed on which are ten Wauchope delegates and one from each of seventeen centres, with Sergt, Logan as secretary, and Mr. R. K. Pountney, assistant secretary.
