The former Brook Hill Private Hospital was originally constructed circa 1919 as a private residence for Daisy and Joseph Cressey. Around 1928, after the death of her husband, Daisy, who was a trained nurse and midwife, converted the home into a private hospital. The hospital operated until 1953 when it was converted into a convalescent home and in 1966 was re-converted for use as a private residence. This former hospital has played an important role in Brisbane’s past by providing health care to many Brisbane residents in the early and mid twentieth century. This residence serves as a reminder of one of Brisbane’s early rural hospitals and retains significant historical and cultural significance for the local community.
