THE DAY Centre was adorned with golden balloons and ﬂowers to celebrate the Deloraine District
Hospital’s 50 golden years in operation. Around 170 invitations were sent to former and current doctors, staff, service clubs and others involved with the Hospital in some way. Director of Nursing and Manager, Lester Jones thanked everyone for their passion and commitment and made particular reference to the Hospital Auxiliary who work tirelessly to raise funds for otherwise unavailable items such as a bladder scanner, beds, televisions, outdoor furniture and coffee machines. Lester said patients tended to stay longer at the Hospital, also fondly known as the Hilton on Barrack.
