Waimarino Hospital reunion planned
back

26 September 2013
 
Former Waimarino Hospital staff members are invited to attend an official reunion on 4, 5 and 6 April 2014.

Waimarino Hospital organising committee secretary Ethne Carmichael is hoping word will reach the many out-of-town people who worked at the Waimarino Hospital between 1922 and 1994 when the hospital closed.
 
“We would love to see as many people as possible coming to the reunion,” says Mrs Carmichael.
 
“It was instigated by Jessie Seamen who recently turned 90 – the oldest surviving employee we know of. Mrs Seamen worked for the hospital from 1940 to 1989 as a radiographer.”
 
The reunion will be held in Raetihi with registrations and the weekend’s festivities taking place in the old nurses home.
