Our History

The Gift - short feature film

Our short feature film, The Gift, tells our story. While much has changed since 1956, the values that underpin this hospital have remained constant, and our mission, to honour the intent of the Deed of Gift of Mr Otto von Rieben by successfully providing safe, contemporary care for every patient, every time in current well equipped facilities, is reflected in the way we manage our hospital today.
