Retired nurses witness landmark hospital refurbished into homes

Memories: (l-r) Stephanie Quinn and Muriel McGuiness at the Old Infirmary in Truro

We invited two retired nurses back to where they once worked at the Old City Infirmary in Truro to see the progress of our careful refurbishment of the landmark building.

Muriel McGuiness (66) and Stephanie Quinn (57) started their training at the Infirmary in their teens and were the first of several former workers at the site to have the chance to inspect the changes.

“The Infirmary is such a great landmark to many in Truro and we were concerned that the building was going to be pulled down altogether,” said Stephanie. “So we are thrilled to come and see how Linden Homes is taking great care in refurbishing the building by restoring its original features and preserving its history.”

Muriel and Stephanie are members of the Royal Cornwall Nurses League which gathers annually to remember life at the hospital and is celebrating its 41st anniversary this year.

They were able to recount the layout of wards and living quarters from the 1970s during a walk about of Royal Barham House, a 300-year-old building that was once home to the city’s Infirmary.

Linden Homes South West managing director Nigel Palmer said: “The Old Infirmary is such a well-known landmark in the community we knew we had to treat it with respect, so I’m very pleased that Muriel and Stephanie were so impressed with the work.”
