The wall in the foyer of the hospital, containing honour rolls and plaques, commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The marble honour rolls commemorating those from the district who lost their lives in World War One were unveiled at the opening of the hospital on the 16th December 1933.

The large metal sculpture features an everlasting torch with the words "Lest We Forget" in embossed lettering. Below the sculpture is a metal honour roll dedicated to those from the district who lost their lives in the Second World War and conflicts in South East Asia 1951 -1972. It was dedicated on 25 April 1982 by Reverend Hank Smit on behalf of the Casino Ministers Fraternal.

Additional plaques have been added to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War Two, Malayan Emergency and Indonesian Confrontation and the Korean War.
