HistoryEdit

Manly Hospital was established in 1896 on the corner of Raglan Street and Quinton Road, as a result of enthusiastic fundraising by William Horner Fletcher[1][2] and a government subsidy.[3] Originally known as the Manly Cottage Hospital, from 1929 it was referred to as the Manly District Hospital.

Future of Manly HospitalEdit

The future of Manly and Mona Vale Hospitals had been the subject of considerable public debate.

In May 2013 the State Government announced the Northern Beaches Hospital would be built at Frenchs Forest. Upon its completion in 2018 it became the primary hospital for the Northern Beaches, with Manly Hospital closing on October 30, 2018.[4]

In 2018 a proposal to build Australia's first hospice for young adults on the hospital site was announced.[5]

In October 2020 public consultation on the Manly Hospital site closed and a planning proposal was submitted to council.[6]
