In June, employees from Arc Infrastructure helped raise funds for the Northam Hospital Ladies Auxiliary, to help them provide much needed equipment for the hospital and patients.
Arc Infrastructure Asset Planner for the Central region, Lee Ilic, said Arc Infrastructure is delighted to be able to provide assistance to the Ladies Auxiliary who play such an important role in providing services to patients and visitors attending the hospital.
“The group currently has approximately 32 ladies who volunteer their time in the kiosk five days a week, twice a day, as well as providing a trolley service to the hospital patients," Lee said.
Through staff fundraising efforts, Arc Infrastructure were able to donate $1,000 direct to the Ladies Auxiliary who were identified by the local workforce as being a critical part of Northam life.
Many of the volunteers have been working with the Northam hospital for nearly forty years including at the old hospital which closed in 1995.
“It was great to meet with the group and hear first-hand how their contributions are making a difference,” Lee said.
“Our support for the Northam Hospital Ladies Auxiliary is Arc Infrastructure trying to make a genuine impact in the communities where our operations are based.”
Ladies Auxiliary President Lorraine Tucker said over the last 12 months, the group had donated over $25,000 to the Northam hospital to purchase much-needed equipment.
“Most recently, we purchased a probe for the Urology unit, which allows for patients to receive prostate biopsies right here at the hospital instead of travelling all the way to Perth.
We are so grateful to receive the boost from Arc Infrastructure which will help us to continue our support for the hospital by contributing to improvements that will allow local residents to receive first-class treatment closer to home,” she said.
The Northam Hospital Ladies Auxiliary is a volunteer group who run the kiosk at Northam Hospital and donate all profits back to the hospital to purchase medical equipment and comfort products for the patients.
