Hospital Auxiliary Volunteers

What is the Auxiliary?

Founded on a tradition of giving the Wayne County Hospital Auxiliary is a non-profit service organization whose mission is to work in conjunction with the Wayne County Hospital by volunteering to promote the health of our community.

This volunteer organization augments the programs and services of Wayne County Hospital by hosting numerous fundraising activities throughout the year, presenting monetary gifts to the hospital to aid in the purchase of new equipment and provide continued educational training opportunities for staff. Their contributions are far reaching and provide valuable benefits for the patients, families and employees of Wayne County Hospital.

This team of volunteers contributes greatly to the high level of care that Wayne County Hospital has successfully provided for over half a century.
