"The new bush nursing hospital which was opened at Broadford on Saturday was built, complete with operating theatre, kitchen, and laundry for only £200 a bed, and the building was opened free of debt. The central council of the Bush Nursing Association of Victoria provided £550 otu of its appropriation from the Edward Wilson (of “The Argus”) Trust, and the remainder of the total cost of £1,700 was obtained by subscription and from entertainments in the district.
The opening ceremony was performed by the president of the Victorain Bush Nursing Association, Lady Mitchell.”

The building shown in the picture still stands today on the corner of High & Short Streets in Broadford, and now operates as the Broadford Community Centre.
