Ovens District Hospital Great War NursesPrint Page
Commemorates World War One nurses who trained at the Ovens District Hospital which was located in Church Street Beechworth.
Most of the nurses saw more than two years active service abroad. They nursed on hospital ships and troop ships as well in general and stationary hospitals and casualty clearing stations in Egypt, England, France, Greece and India.
The plaque is located at the base of the flagpole next to the Lest We Forget stone. The granite boulders were sourced from local farms near Beechworth. The flagpole is where our residents from the Aged Care area, Acute patients and staff gather for ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day Services.
