Lemnos Hospital and Pine Trees
Lemnos Hospital, 227 Stubbs Terrace, Shenton Park 6008.
The Hospital was officially opened on 12 July 1926 by Governor Sir William Campion to provide treatment and care for ex-servicemen suffering from mental illness. It was named after the island in the Aegean Sea used as a Hospital during World War I.
It was designed with the intention of providing a home rather than an instituition for returned service men, and in this respect reflected the contemporary attitude towards hospital design in the 1920s.
Following WWII the number of patients at the hospital increased resulting in the construction of a new closed ward in 1955. An additional ward block was constructed in the 1960s.
The Hospital currently houses geriatric patients suffering from mental illness. Among them are a few of the original returned service-men.
This Building was Erected for the Welfare of Soldiers who Suffered in the Great War.
