The first auxiliaries for Hepburn Health Service (then district hospitals) were formed over 50 years ago. Many auxiliary members have been dedicating their time for Creswick, Daylesford and Trentham hospitals for many years and are an integral support to our service.
The invaluable contribution that hospital auxiliaries make to our service and the wider community cannot be underestimated. Hospital auxiliary members are committed teams at Trentham, Creswick and Daylesford who give generously of their time and spirit to the staff, patients and community. If you would like to participate in this valuable work, please contact reception at any of our campuses for more details.
