History

The Wesley Hospital has its roots in St Helen's Hospital (Brisbane) at South Brisbane. In the late 1960s, it became clear St Helen's Hospital could not expand on its existing site. This led to the purchase of the Moorlands Estate at Auchenflower in 1971. The State Government would not allow the hospital to operate on two sites under the same name, so the new site became Wesley Hospital. Construction commenced in 1975 and the Wesley Hospital received its first patients by ambulance convoy from St Helen's on 1 March 1977.
