Manly Hospital provided medical services to the Northern Beaches area of Sydney, Australia before the transfer of services to Northern Beaches Hospital. The Northern Sydney Local Health District managed Manly Hospital.

History[edit]

As a result of enthusiastic fundraising by William Horner Fletcher[1] and a government subsidy, the Manly Cottage Hospital (known after 1929 as the Manly District Hospital) was established in 1896 on the corner of Raglan Street and Quinton Road.[2]

Future of Manly Hospital[edit]

The future of Manly and Mona Vale Hospitals had been the subject of considerable public debate.

In May 2013 the State Government announced the Northern Beaches Hospital would be built at Frenchs Forest. Upon its completion in 2018 it became the primary hospital for the Northern Beaches, with Manly Hospital closing on October 30, 2018.[3]
