Randwick Military Hospital
Military hospital established during World War I in Randwick in the former Asylum for Destitute Children building and the Catherine Hayes Hospital. The grounds were in use by the millitary by August 1914, while the buildings were still occupied by children and Asylum staff. The last of the children left the Asylum in October 1915 and by November 300 wounded soldiers were being treated there. The site was formally taken over by the NSW Government in 1916. In 1953 remaining soldiers being treated at the hospital were transferred to the Concord Repatrition Hospital, and the buildings became part of the Prince of Wales Hospital.
