Sister said the most positive decision made during her term as leader, was the purchase of 92 Pensioner Houses at Upper Hutt. The biggest change made, was the closure of the hospital. Meetings were held with representatives from the Government and the Health Department. Professionals were employed by the sisters to explore the needs in the community and look at other options of continuing the hospital. When Suzanne Aubert opened the hospital in 1926 it was needed to train the sisters as registered nurses and to care for the sick and people in need who had difficulty in accessing the public system. Sister Rae is now living at Loreto Home in Wagga Wagga, Australia.
