The memorial entrance gates to the Casino and District Memorial Hospital commemorate those who served in the First World War. The gateway is constructed of brick with a large central entrance and two smaller gates constructed of wrought iron metal. On the left hand side is a metal plaque featuring a marching soldier and on the right are the insignias of the Australian Defence Forces.
The Northern Star on 15 March 1933 published a report on the Casino Hospital Board meeting held that month, where Mr A. G. Simpson suggested to establish a memorial gate at the hospital to contain an honour roll for those who served in the First World War. The suggestion was accepted and it was also decided to ask Government Architect Mr. Ewan Smith, Colonel F. J. Board of Lismore and Mr Ash of Grafton to "provide a donation of suitable design for gate." The archway and gates were handed over to the board of directors on Monday 16 December 1935. The honour rolls planned for the gates are located in the foyer of the hospital.
