This building was built in 1942 as an extension of the existing hospital, in response to a pressing need for improved health services for the large military population of the Tennant Creek district during World War Two. It was designed by noted architect B.C.G Burnett, and is the only known design by Burnett in Tennant Creek.
After the war, it served for over thirty years as the outpatients department for the Tennant Creek Hospital. It is now the only surviving structure from the former Tennant Creek Hospital.
The building was restored by the National Trust in 1980. It is known as ‘Tuxworth-Fullwood House’, after Mrs Hilda Tuxworth, M.B.E., and Mr. Bill and Mrs. Marjorie Fullwood, in recognition of their services to the National Trust.
