Description: "Local Committee Determined to Fight for Hospital; The Woy Woy and District Memorial Hospital Committee will continue to work for the establishment of a hospital at Woy Woy and its next move will be a deputation to the Minister for Health, Mr. Jago" details a public protest meeting held by the Committee in the Woy Woy Masonic Hall. The Committee was adamant that money subscribed by the people of Woy Woy, $30,000 to date, must be used for the sole purpose for which it was given - a hospital in Woy Woy. Mr. Tom Waugh, president of the Woy Woy Lion's Club presented a cheque for $250. Mr. Ted Humphries M.L.A. will be asked to arrange and lead the deputation. The Committee unanimously rejected a report by Mr. Ted Humphries stating consideration should be given to the establishment of a nursing home on Ocean Beach Road and this meeting was called in protest. Mr. A. Osborne, president of the Woy Woy Hospital Committee believed there was a great need for a subsidiary hospital at Woy Woy and added every doctor in the Woy Woy district had signed the petition for a hospital at Woy Woy. Mr. Humphries was not present at the protest meeting citing a previous engagement.
