Over the past decade, the Auxiliary has helped raise over $1.5 million for hospital equipment, facilities and services.
Founded in 1924, the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary 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.
How we make a difference.
Auxiliary members work hard to promote Emerson Hospital through increased community awareness, health-related education and vital fundraising initiatives. We organize large and small events, hold lectures and seminars, coordinate concerts, make crafts and write articles, among many other activities.
How we work with the community.
The Auxiliary increases community awareness of hospital services through local events, newsletters, media announcements and communications with friends, neighbors and colleagues. We aim to be the voice of the communities served by Emerson and always welcome new ideas for involvement.
How we make it all happen.
Fundraising events sponsored by the Auxiliary include the Emerson Hospital Golf Tournament, Reflections in Bloom Art and Flower Show, and Tree of Lights. The Auxiliary’s hugely successful cookbook, Revolutionary Recipes, has become a local bestseller and has contributed significantly to fundraising efforts.
