History of Milton Ulladulla Hospital
The first hospital in the Milton Ulladulla area was established in 1908 by Harold Riley, it was a basic facility which employed nurses to care for patients. In 1936 it was transferred to government control, and in 1938 was renamed to the current Milton Ulladulla Hospital. By 1967, it had outgrown the original cottage and was relocated to the current buildings with the then Governor of New South Wales Sir Roden Cutler officially opening the new facility.
A Cancer Services Centre was established in 2003 to provide an outpatient oncology clinic for the community. Despite a major setback caused by fire destroying the original clinic building in March 2005, the new Centre, built with community funds was transferred to the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District and opened its doors in 2008.
