Memories of National Women's Hospital at Cornwall Park: Part One - New Mothers
On 24 February 2024, Cornwall Park hosted a heritage day to commemorate the 39th General United States Army Hospital, National Women’s Hospital and Cornwall Geriatric Hospital which all found their homes on Cornwall Park in the 20th century. Our Health Journeys documented the experiences and reminisces of some of the hospital staff as part of the heritage day. Many of the staff recounted memories along the same themes and each part of this series presents one theme. Listen to the staff as they recount some of their experiences with new mothers at the hospital here in part one.
