Picnic push to save

Mona Vale Hospital

Community groups are launching

a last-ditch bid to save Mona

Vale Hospital, with a family

picnic to be held on Sunday 16

September from 11.30am to

2.30pm at Robert Dunn Reserve

(behind the Hospital). Organiser

Pip Rey said everyone was

invited to attend and show

support. “We want to see people

whose lives were saved there,

who were born there or who

have been patched up there

over the years,” she said. “It will

be a statement about the importance

of our local, community

hospital and also a day of fun,

with family friendly entertainment,

such as pony rides and

music.” The picnic follows a

public meeting in July which

drew attention to the risks

associated with the closure of

Mona Vale Hospital and showed

strong support to keep Mona

Vale Hospital as a Level 3 hospital,

with emergency, surgery

and in-patient beds, she said.
