The Prince Henry Hospital Trained Nurses Association (PHHTNA) was formed on 9th November 1960. Members are all nurses who graduated from The Coast and The Prince Henry Hospital.

The main objective of the PHHTNA is to promote the interests of the former hospital and the nursing profession.

Lady Helen Cutler, the wife of the Governor of NSW Sir Arthur “Roden” Cutler, was the first Patron of the Association.


The Prince Henry Hospital Trained Nurses Association, operating the Prince Henry Hospital Nursing and Medical Museum, seek to preserve and maintain our hospital’s historical heritage that began on the headlands of Little Bay in 1881, a place for the sick in a beautiful setting which enhanced the healing process.

Its collection consists of past historical equipment, a research library and fascinating picture galleries which are accessible to all.

We seek to continue with the culture of Health care by running programs that educate the community on important health care issues and to embrace all, especially future generations, the elderly and our local Aboriginal community.

We honour the role of our Doctors, Nurses and others from this hospital, who daily displayed their professional abilities in the healing process.
