The Pembroke Regional Hospital Auxiliary operates many services within the Hospital (eg. The Sunshine Gift Shop, Mural Café, TV rentals) and organizes several community initiatives which contribute to the financial health of the Hospital. 


Sunshine Gift Shop

The Auxiliary-operated Sunshine Gift Shop is located at the entrance to Tower B (Deacon Street entrance).An assortment of gifts, fresh flowers, cards, clothing, snacks, as well as some religious articles such as rosaries are available.

The Mural Café

The Mural Café is located on the ground floor of Tower B, across from the Diagnostic Imaging Department. Operated by the Pembroke Regional Hospital Auxiliary, it offers a variety of coffees, fresh baked cookies, muffins, bagels, soup and sandwiches. A selection of juices, soft drinks, fruit and yogurt are also available.

TV rentals

The PRH Auxiliary sells TV vouchers in the Sunshine Gift Shop at a cost of $10 per day including tax. Vouchers can be paid for by cash, debit, credit card or PRH gift card. Family members can also purchase the service for loved ones by telephone, and the finance office will offer discounted rates for long-term use over 30 days.


These vouchers are taken to the nursing station on the patient’s unit where they are collected by housekeeping staff who activate and deactivate the TV services. In terms of timing for activation, any voucher turned in before 3 p.m. each day will be activated the same day, while those submitted after 3 p.m. will be activated at 7 a.m. the next morning.


Patients are also provided with a TV guide and headphones at the time of purchase.



The PRH Auxiliary receives regular charitable proceeds from the Pembroke location of Delta Bingo & Gaming. Pre-COVID, our Auxiliary members are regularly onsite volunteering their time to assist with the BINGO events.

A huge thank you to Pembroke's Delta Bingo & Gaming for their July, 2023 donation of $10,000 to the PRH Auxiliary.

This money will go towards the Auxiliary's $500,000 commitment in support of the orthopaedics program and improvements to the hospital's inpatient Surgical unit.

Fashion Shows

For 53 years our Auxiliary hosted an annual fall tea at the Marguerite Centre, but as with all events, the need to modernize and revitalize provided us with the opportunity in 2014 to make significant changes resulting in the scheduling of regular fashion shows. These were put on pause during the pandemic with the first post-COVID event scheduled to take place this spring.  

Mural Project

In September, 2004, local artist Helen Schruder generously donated her time and talents to create a historic rendition of Pembroke’s hospitals from 1878 to the present. With a minimum “In Memoriam” donation of $100 recognition can be made on the mural board to honour a person or persons.
