Benefits of Auxiliary Membership
As a member of the Auxiliary, you belong to the St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital team – a team of dedicated individuals committed to continuing the healing mission of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis that began over 130 years ago. Your role is just as important as the role played by every other member of that team.
Members of Auxiliary are part of an organization that serves under the auspices of St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital. The executive power of the Auxiliary is vested in an Executive Committee that conducts the affairs of the Auxiliary in accordance with Bylaws of the Auxiliary. All actions of the Auxiliary Executive Committee are subject to the approval of the Hospital’s Board of Directors or the Hospital Administrator.
The current Executive Committee is:
|Membership Services Chairperson
|Special Events Chairperson
|Guest Amenities Chairperson
|Immediate Past President
The general membership of the Auxiliary meet at least once a year to conduct business and/or to elect and install new Executive Committee members. The meeting is often a luncheon meeting provided by the hospital for all members.
The second week of May is National Hospital Week, where various hospital team groups are honored for their service to the hospital. Auxiliary members are treated to an appreciation luncheon, where they receive awards for the hours of volunteer service they provided over the past year.
In addition to the National Hospital Week luncheon, Auxiliary members are welcome to attend appreciation events sponsored periodically throughout the year by the hospital for employees, Medical Staff and volunteers.
As members of the St. Anthony’s team, Auxiliary members receive Spotlight, the hospital's monthly newsletter, which is mailed to their homes to keep them informed on everything going on at the hospital. In addition, the Auxiliary Newsletter is mailed to their homes twice a year with Auxiliary membership information.
