Hugh Solomon Building Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2013

Designed by Gilbert St John Cottrill in 1904, this was the first Nurse's Home for the General Hospital where all nurses in training lived. In 1926 a new wing was added, and in 1936 a new hall and dining-hall were completed by Gordon Leith. It was named after the Chairman of the Hospital Board from 1930-1955. Dress regulations, training and deportment for the nurses were very strict. In 2006 it was refurbished, and serves as the headquarters of the Wits Reproductive and HIV Institute.
