A big thank you once again to our wonderful Hospital Auxiliary.
On Friday 14 July, at their "Christmas in July Meeting" the Auxiliary presented a cheque for $10,157 to the hospital. These funds will be used to purchase two resuscitation trolleys and IMED pumps for the hospital's theatre.
Pictured are Kay Felmingham (Secretary) and Lorraine Marie (President) handing the cheque to hospital representative Anne Lewis.
We are proud to welcome our first patient to the New Hospital Wing! Natalie Cain from Puckapunyal gave birth to Mackenzie on Tuesday 23 June 2015. Natalie said it was brilliant to be in the new wing. She also said the midwifes and staff at KDH were amazing - she could not have been happier.
Pictured above is Natalie's family, together with some of the KDH family.

The Hospital also welcomed our first GEM patients on 6 July 2015 as part of our partnership with Northern Health. The GEM patients are also located in the new hospital wing.
