Joining the Auxiliary

Volunteers of Hammond-Henry Hospital are encouraged, but not required, to become members of the Hammond-Henry Hospital Auxiliary as another way to show their support of their hospital in the community. The Auxiliary is made up of a board consisting of officers and chairpersons that plan educational and fund raising activities.

A variety of fund raising activities are held by the Auxiliary. All profits go towards the purchase of equipment for Hammond-Henry Hospital. They also provide educational programs to the community.

The Auxiliary provides health career scholarships for college students through profits from an Ice Cream Social each summer.
