Kiosk delivers the goods
Wednesday, 6th November, 2013
More than $100,000 worth of equipment has been purchased for the Maternity Unit by the Kiosk Auxiliary.
All the volunteers of the kiosk have worked hard to raise the money over the last two years.
The equipment included two cardio respiratory neonatal monitors, a “neonatal resuscitaire” for supporting unwell babies, and a portable light source for use in the unit.
“This equipment allows the doctors and midwives to provide advanced care for mothers and babies in Broken Hill and the district,” said Elizabeth Bennett, Midwifery Unit Manager.
“We are very lucky to be the recipients of much-needed upgraded equipment. It was an incredibly big donation.
“We are very thankful for the tireless efforts of the Kiosk Auxiliary team in assisting to upgrade the Unit’s equipment.”
President of the Kiosk Auxiliary, Betty Sammut, said all the money was raised at the kiosk.
“We haven’t done anything outside of that. I am very thankful of all the volunteers that help out.
“We try to get as much as we can for the hospital.”
