The mission of Woodland Healthcare Auxiliary, founded in 1961, is serving our patients and community with the best comprehensive and compassionate healthcare, every day.
Woodland Healthcare's Auxiliary volunteers play an integral role in the delivery of patient and family services at Woodland Memorial Hospital. Auxiliary volunteers operate the hospital Gift Shop and Information Desk. They assist with patients and their families in several departments throughout the hospital, conduct and support fund-raising activities and health screenings, and perform other very important functions that support the mission of Woodland Memorial Hospital to improve the health of our patients and community through outstanding care and service. Placement depends on each individual's interests and skills and the current needs of Woodland Memorial Hospital.
Over the years, the men and women of the Woodland Healthcare Auxiliary have donated thousands of dollars in equipment to the hospital and clinic. Equipment donations have included Lifeline units, whirlpool baths, newborn monitors, birthing beds, television equipment and eight much-needed automatic external defibrillator (AED) machines.
There are two ways to support the Auxiliary:
- Active members provide a minimum of 36 hours of volunteer service hours annually.
- Associate members interested in purpose of Auxiliary but who do not participate actively.
- Life members pay one time fee of $150 or have volunteered 5,000 hours.
