Elizabeth Vale street names

During the stages of planning the Lyell McEwin Hospital the Housing Trust sought advice and help in planning, organising and staffing from Matron Banwell, as Matron of Salisbury Hospital, and Mr John Joel who became the first Administrator of the Hospital, along with Drs John Rice and Frank Trembath, both of whom practised in Salisbury.  The Trust looked further afield to established hospitals and included Dr Wallace of the Whyalla Hospital on their panel of consultants.  Then they also approached the Matrons and Assistant Matrons together with some of the nursing sisters from Calvary Hospital, Royal Adelaide Hospital, St Andrew’s Hospital and Memorial Hospital, to give advice.

Streets in the Elizabeth Vale area are named in their honour.
