Woodside Hospital in East Fremantle was originally built as a home for William Dalgety Moore who owned an importing and exporting business in Fremantle. In the 1930s, Dr East purchased the property and used it as a private hospital. During World War II it was converted to flats. The State Government bought it after the War and it was opened as a Maternity Hospital in 1954. Matron Leggett was the first Matron.
