Women who make a hospital wish come true

NO ONE knows exactly how many cups of tea or vanilla slices were sold to buy the new sensor monitor at the Casino Hospital.

Through the hard work of the Women's Hospital Auxiliary, $6100 was raised to buy a machine that monitors carbon dioxide levels in patients in the emergency ward.

This was done through morning teas, raffles and the hospital kiosk.

Unit nurse Rebecca Lyon was thrilled to show the women the new monitor.

"We got the top notch one,” Ms Lyon said.

"We've already used it three time.”

The auxiliary have spent more than $16,000 on the hospital.

"We wait for a wish list,” president Robyn Spruce said.

The monitor was on Ms Lyons' wish list.

It is the quiet work of this group of women that serves the hospital and community.

Everyone involved across the community was thanked for their efforts.
