New Springfield Place video celebrates History of Goulburn base hospital

Springfield Place, a new permanent heritage exhibition that celebrates the heritage and history of the Goulburn Base Hospital has opened to the community.

Part of the Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment, Springfield Place includes a collection of photos, artefacts and stories from across Goulburn Base Hospital's 130-year history. 

The exhibition brings to life the story of how the hospital and health services have grown and evolved with the community over the years and showcases some remarkable artefacts and items from the hospital's collection.

The new heritage display features stories and memories of the hospital shared by current and former staff, along with contributions from local groups such as the Goulburn Historical Society, Goulburn Post and Goulburn Mulwaree Library.

The Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment Arts and Heritage Working Group worked with the Goulburn Base Hospital Volunteer Group to select a variety of items which are on display. 

The redevelopment also includes new artwork created by local Aboriginal students and artists, restored tapestries and bright installations of local flora around lifts and staff stations.
