Treasured kiosk reopens at Rosebud Hospital thanks to Peninsula Health volunteers

After a two-and-a-half-year hiatus, the kiosk at Rosebud Hospital has returned to deliver its delicious range of sandwiches, beverages and treats.

Rosebud Hospital Kiosk Axillary President Maureen Murray said she was glad to be back at the hospital and reconnecting with staff and visitors again.

“It’s fantastic to be back, I’ve missed meeting the staff, doctors and visitors,” she said. Having undergone three operations at Rosebud Hospital, Maureen decided it was time to give back to her community by establishing the Rosebud Hospital Kiosk Axillary, where she volunteers her time running the kiosk.  

Through kiosk sales, raffles and other fundraising initiatives, the auxiliary has raised more than $450,000, which has gone towards purchasing lifesaving equipment and providing easier access to hospital facilities for those living on the Mornington Peninsula.

Rosebud Hospital Acting Operations Director Jacqui Allen, joined the festivities to welcome back our volunteers.

“It brings a strong sense of community back to the hospital,” she said.

“We really missed that during the last couple of years, their presence and their smiling faces, not to mention the absolutely wonderful sandwiches they make.”

So next time you’re feeling hungry, just remember that every time you order a sandwich from the Rosebud Hospital kiosk, you are helping give back to our hospital.
