Auxiliary president Christine Storey said she enjoyed the friendships she had made with fellow members and the feeling of doing something worthwhile.
"It's a milestone for us," she said.
"It's a nice feeling to be doing something good. You never know when you'll be in hospital.
"Every little bit helps."
Fairfield Hospital acting general manager Karen Becker said the auxiliary's work and dedication was inspiring.
"Our auxiliary members work tirelessly throughout the year, generously giving their time to support our hospital," Ms Becker said.
"Staff, patients and visitors are extremely grateful for their fund-raising efforts, which help to provide additional equipment to complement and enhance existing services."
