Quorn and District Memorial Hospital was erected to commemorate those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

Quorn rose to a great occasion when the S.A. Minister for Health (Mr. McEwin) laid the foundation stone of this new £18,000 Soldiers' Memorial Hospital. There was a large attendance from right throughout the district. Official visitors included Senator and Mrs. O'Flaherty, the Mayor and Mayoress of Quorn, the Chairman of the District Council, Mr. L. Riches M.P., members of the hospital board, Matron Dix, and Dr. Tippelt.  The Minister, during the foundation laying ceremony, paid tribute to the work of Dr. Tippelt and the Matron and hospital staff, who, he said, were rendering splendid service under very difficult conditions.
