BH Hospital Kiosk Auxiliary donate $188,000 to buy hospital equipment

The continued great work by the Broken Hill Hospital Kiosk volunteers will culminate with a single donation this year to the hospital to buy equipment specifically requested by management.

The Broken Hill Hospital Kiosk Auxiliary will present a cheque for $188,000 to Far West Chief Executive, Stuart Riley and the Broken Hill Health Service Acting General Manager, Sam Lazarus, on Monday, 22 June 2015.

The donation is the highest single year donation by the Kiosk. It is the second time the Kiosk has donated to a single major project for the hospital, last year being $160,000 to upgrade a patient clinical monitoring system.

This year’s donation will help buy a Dorrier Laser, Uretro videoscope (to be used in the theatre for urology and gastro procedures) and a scan machine for cataract procedures.

Kiosk Treasurer, Stephen Bennetts, said: “The members of the Kiosk voted unanimously to support this request from the hospital and are pleased to see their hard work contribute in purchasing this equipment.”

Kiosk President, Cheryl Meuret, said: “Everyone at the Kiosk are thrilled to be involved with this project and are looking forward to the benefit to our community in having this equipment in our hospital”.
