  • I was born at Lurnea Private Hospital on 14th January 1941. I later visted my much older sister there when she had her first child. I would then have been about 9 or 10 so I gather Lurnea was open during the War years and some few beyond 1945. I was told that the hospital was demolished to make more room for the Annandale Bowling Club, now known as the Leichhardt Bowling & Recreation Club, situated at 88-92 Piper Street. I was also told there was a large photo of the old hospital hanging in the Club.

    I was born at Lurnea Private Hospital on the 1st September, 1946. I was just looking at my birth certificate and thought I would look up the hospital to see if it was still there. I don’t know when it was demolished, but would like to know.

    My Great Aunt was an owner of the hospital. I may have a few photos around but they won’t be that great and came onto this site hoping that someone has a really good one.

    I too was born at Lurnea Private Hospital (in 1946). My parents lived very near the Women’s Hospital in Surry Hills , were not at all well off and had no motor vehicle so I wonder why they chose a private hospital in another suburb. All I can think of is that my mother thought very highly of a Dr. Bentivoglio in Macquarie Street, perhaps he had an association with Lurnea.

  • Guys and girls I am the manager of Leichhardt bowling and recreation club, I have never seen a photo of the hospital, since I started in 2006 there hasn’t been a photo in the club. Just wanted to clear that up. I don’t even believe the local library has one. As we were trying to source one a few years ago
