Seymour District Memorial Hospital was erected to the memory of those from the district who served in both World Wars. 

The original Seymour Soldier’s Memorial Hospital was officially opened on 9 May 1920 by Brigadier General Wisdon and was located the former residence of Mr J.B. Bullen, a former manager of the Bank of Victoria. The hospital was funded by public subscription and leased to Matron L.C. Rutherford to treat ex-servicemen from World War One.

In June 1951, over thirty years after it first opened, the hospital became a public community facility and plans were drawn for a new building.  The new 28-bed facility opened in 1959 and was officially named the Seymour District Hospital. In 1965, it was renamed the Seymour District Memorial Hospital.  At that time a six bed children’s ward was added.
