Ms Berenis (Benny) Alcorn, author of A Hospital in the Making - Nambour General Hospital, will be honoured at a morning tea at the Nambour Hospital on Monday ( August 11, 2008).
Ms Alcorn, who has a strong interest in Nambour and the surrounding district, wrote the book after extensive research into its history. She is donating the last copy of the book to the hospital.
Kevin Hegarty, District Manager of the Sunshine Coast & Cooloola Health Service District, said the book donation could not happen at a better time.
"The Nambour Hospital is on the verge of an exciting redevelopment project which includes construction of a new Ward Block to replace the existing Block 3."
"The new block will consist of a new 24-bed paediatric ward, two 24-bed general wards and a 24-bed respiratory ward," Mr Hegarty added.
Detailed floor plans, together with an artist's impression of the new building, will be available for viewing on the day.
