Franklin Memorial Hospital, Waiuku 

Franklin Memorial Hospital was officially opened in Kitchener Road, Waiuku, on 28 April 1923. This was a 'cottage hospital', funded partly by the Auckland Hospital Board and partly by public subscriptions, as a memorial to the men of Franklin who had served during the First World War. For many years it served as west Franklin's maternity hospital, but was converted into a geriatric hospital in the late 1970s.
