The Auxiliary of North Eastern Community Hospital and Nursing Home was established in 1982 with the purpose of raising funds that would help with the establishment of the Hospital and Nursing Home.
The Auxiliary consists of an Executive group which oversees the Auxiliary to fundraise for the Hospital and Nursing Home. The Auxiliary maintains the kiosk, which is manned by volunteers 7 days a week.
The Auxiliary provides a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for people entering the Hospital and Nursing Home either as patients, residents or visitors.
Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated. Volunteers also assist with escorting patients for admission and with arranging and keeping flowers fresh for patients.
The Auxiliary Executive meets monthly on a Monday evening and interested parties are welcome to attend.
The Magnolia Café
The Magnolia Café offers a variety of delicious coffee, cakes and other drinks & snacks. You can also find there a variety of new baby gift baskets and a selection of newborn clothes, limited toiletries, magazines, cards, gift wrap, balloons, etc. Also available upon request are Cuddle Pod Slings available from newborn to toddlers.
All proceeds from the Café go towards upgrades and equipment for the hospital and nursing home.
The Auxiliary organises fundraising events including fashion parades, quiz nights, theatre evenings, Chinese banquets and lamington & slice drives.

Entertainment Books are a great way to save money at fine restaurants, casual cafes, hotels and bistros around Adelaide while helping our fundraising efforts. The books also include vouchers for movies, sports & entertainment and savings on accommodation. The Entertainment Books are available at North Eastern Community Hospital reception.
Donating directly to the North Eastern Community Hospital and Nursing Home Auxiliary is the most effective way to support the Hospital and Nursing Home. Donations in excess of $2.00 are fully tax deductible. We recognise major gifts / donations by naming equipment, rooms or other items within the hospital and nursing home or by giving recognition on a notice board.
