How a 101-year-old nurse left her 1950s time warp apartment worth $1.1million to the hospital she worked at for 70 years

By Taylor and Partners Reception

A nurse has gifted her 1950s ‘time warp’ apartment to the hospital she worked at for more than 70 years.

Elizabeth Anne ‘Nan’ Kearins bequeathed the $1.1million two-bedroom apartment in Darling Point in Sydney’s eastern suburbs to the city’s St Vincent’s Hospital when she died at the age of 101 in 2019.
