‘In the Beginning: The Formative Years of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’
A quiet Sunday morning in March 1965. Two teams of surgeons set up in adjoining operating theatres in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in suburban Adelaide. Over the next few hours they perform the first successful living donor kidney transplant in Australia, cementing a reputation for innovation and excellence at South Australia’s newest medical facility. Foundation staff member Bill Proudman’s memoir is an insight into the evolution of a medical institution and the personalities who shaped the hospital’s character.
