General Information

Established at the Ekibin Hospital in Brisbane, it later moved to the Holland Park Hospital after it was vacated by the US Army's 42nd General Hospital. Ekibin is adjacent to the current Greenslopes Hospital. At the Holland Park site the 102nd AGH had numerous covered wooden ramps connecting the various wards and offices on the large site. There were all the usual sections one would expect to find in a large hospital such as a Physiotherapy section and an Occupation Therapy Section.

The hospital remained open through 1946.
