Our auxilians' efforts are dedicated to a varied scope of endeavors and projects. Nevertheless, their purpose remains singular in striving to improve the quality of healthcare provided to our hospital’s patients and community through advocacy, fundraising, and service.
The Auxiliary Board oversees and helps direct the efforts of many enthusiastic volunteers who successfully present the Annual Golf Classic, our holiday Tree of Lights, and the popular spring fashion show and luncheon.
These and other fundraising projects are valuable components in our mission of outreach and advocacy, helping the auxilians to offer philanthropic support and assist in underwriting specific hospital initiatives to improve and enhance programs or services. Our auxiliaries also promote causes related to community health and wellness such as advancing automobile child seat and children’s bike helmet safety.
Additionally, the Auxiliary Board awards nursing scholarships to area candidates who have committed themselves to beginning their careers at Underwood.
The Auxiliary Board has also raised over $1 million for Women’s Health Services. In 2010, the Auxiliary Board celebrates its' 75th anniversary, raising over $5 million since its inception. The current pledge supports the hospital's transition to digital radiography.
