The Old Nurses Home and the Doctors Residence opened in 1941 to accommodate staff of the Waimarino Hospital. Back then Raetihi was a thriving timber town and the hospital which opened in 1922 had three full-time Doctors, Nurses, Radiographers, even their own full-time gardener.
Sadly the hospital was torn down in 2009, however The Old Nurses Home found a new lease of life as a unique accommodation and events venue set within 5 acres of park-like grounds with breathtaking views of Mt Ruapehu.
