The members of the Auxiliary of Veterans Memorial Hospital are actively recruiting new and returning members to join them during their annual membership drive which is going on now.
The Auxiliary of Veterans Memorial Hospital is devoted to providing the hospital and its patients and visitors with many services. The Auxiliary also holds annual fundraiser, such as the Women’s Health Day Luncheon each fall, the Pillow-Perk in October, a garage sale in the spring and their annual membership drive each July. All the money the Auxiliary receives goes back to the hospital for equipment.
The Auxiliary has purchased numerous items for the hospital, including OB Birthing Beds, an ER cart, an infant hearing screening machine, a NuStep exercise machine, an EKG machine, the Maternity Services Birthing Tub, ice machines, flat screen TV’s for patient rooms, a fetal heart monitor and infant warmer for OB, a noninvasive transcutaneous bilirubinometer, patient weigh beds, renovated the outpatient treatment room at the hospital, blanket warmers, an infant hearing screening machine and have helped fund the new 3D digital mammography machine and most recently the new surgery sterilizers, pictured here.
The Auxiliary meets monthly on the 2nd Monday of each month, at 1:00 p.m., in the ICN Conference Room at Veterans Memorial Hospital with refreshments served.
Auxiliary membership dues are just $10.00 for active members and $15.00 for inactive members. Enrollment forms are available at the main entrance of the hospital. For more information, please call Auxiliary President, Bev Larson-Needham at 568-4287.
