Designed by Dr Easterbrook the medical superintendent with James Fleet the Institution's Clerk of Works. The provision of a large building to provide recreational and therapeutic facilities for the whole
hospital was the culmination of Dr Easterbrook's grand scheme for the hospital. Costing $60,000 it provided when built an unrivalled range of facilities for the benefit of patients including a small swimming pool. It was seen as very much in keeping with the progressive policy
adopted by successive board of directors in the one hundred years history of the institution.
