Celebrating 75 Years

Born from a 300-bed military hospital intended to accommodate injured and sick United States military personnel serving in the Pacific, Middlemore Hospital opened to the public in 1947.

Middlemore is now a tertiary-level hospital facility that boasts the busiest emergency department in the southern hemisphere, a world-renowned plastic surgery and burns centre, a leading spinal unit, and award-winning mental health facilities within an organisation that serves the health needs of over half a million people.

In celebration of 75 years of service, we are sharing 75 stories of this incredible building, its people, and the communities it serves.

Waiho raa kia tuu takitahi ana ngaa whetuu o te rangi
Let it be one alone that stands among the stars
