The hospital changes its name to the “Melbourne Hospital for Sick Children” and moves to bigger premises at 13 Spring Street Melbourne.

The move to Spring Street enabled the number of beds to increase from 6 to 15 and outpatient attendances rose from 1,726 in the last year at Stephen Street to 7,381 in the first year at Spring Street.
