Founded in 1924, the Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital is committed to supporting Emerson’s mission of providing the highest quality medical services in a warm, personalized setting. The Auxiliary supports the community by enhancing the patient experience, increasing awareness of the Hospital’s services, and providing educational programs.
We Enhance the Patient Experience
From making teddy bears that comfort our youngest patients, hanging art to create a warm and caring environment, to funding state-of-the-art facilities, and advanced medical equipment, we strive to improve the patient experience in all areas.
We Increase Awareness of Hospital Services
We hold special events for Auxiliary members and their guests in order to spread the word about Emerson Hospital’s wide range of high-quality healthcare services. These include speakers and demonstrations at coffees, luncheons and evening gatherings.
We Host Programs that Inform and Educate
We offer programs to our community that feature Emerson Hospital’s well-respected medical professionals who share their expertise on current health and wellness issues.
We Help Fund Initiatives
We fund technology that enables real time communication among departments, cardiac rehabilitation equipment and programs, state-of-the-art 3D mammography, nursing education, and more.
