1864. Opening of Queensland's first hospital for women. Leichhardt Street, Spring Hill, Brisbane.
Queensland’s first hospital for women opened in 1864, on Leichhardt Street, Spring Hill. Originally known as the Queensland Lying-In Hospital, it was later renamed Lady Bowen Hospital after the wife of Queensland’s first Governor.
Although there had been general hospitals in the region before this, the opening of a women’s hospital was a clear indication of the growing prosperity and population of Queensland.
