This weekend the City of Subiaco will farewell the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) as the new Perth Children’s Hospital opens the doors to its emergency department from 7am on Sunday 10 June.
Since 1909, Princess Margaret Hospital has been an internationally recognised paediatric facility, treating children and adolescents fifteen years and younger. The hospital received around 250 000 patient visits each year.
The contribution of the PMH will be remembered in the City of Subiaco through the Kite Children sculpture which was rehomed from the hospital to Subiaco Library in September 2016.
