Hamilton General Hospital Auxiliary
Strong commitment and support of high quality healthcare services by our community are what makes Hamilton Healthcare System so successful. Hamilton General Hospital’s Auxiliary has been a driving force in the community for the hospital for many years. We are fortunate to have outstanding healthcare professionals and facilities in Hamilton, thanks to the foresight, tenacity and stewardship of many of our citizens over the years.
The Hamilton General Hospital Auxiliary exists to help the Hamilton Healthcare System. This dynamic group works tirelessly on fund-raisers to underwrite new programs and projects for the hospital. The volunteers also support the work of Hamilton General Hospital by purchasing needed equipment and furnishings for patient rooms, and by volunteering their time to distribute the local newspaper to patients every week and assist hospital departments. From scholarships to specific requests from staff, the auxiliary supports needs throughout the healthcare system. Most recently, donations include a patient laptop, entertainment consoles, guest sleep chair, recumbent bike at the Wellness Center and CPR training equipment. The Auxiliary coordinates the LifeLine program, which allows many seniors to remain independent and live at home safely. The Auxiliary Lifeline representatives deliver each system and demonstrate how it works. With just the touch of a button, Lifeline subscribers are able to call for help immediately and are 10 times less likely to require admission to nursing homes, according to a study cited on Lifeline’s web site. The response center operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The Auxiliary funded landscaping for the new hospital and continues to maintain the Serenity Garden.
The Auxiliary welcomes all levels of philanthropy including gifts, memorials and honorariums. Tax deductible contributions can be sent to
