The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton Celebrates 70th Anniversary

Many of the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton volunteers gather during their annual awards.

This May the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton cebrated its 70th anniversary. The Auxiliary works to raise funds for equipment, programs, services and patient care at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton, and various outpatient locations throughout UM Shore Regional Health, including the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center, the Cancer Center and various rehabilitation facilities.

Established in 1947, the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton started as a suggestion of the Memorial Hospital Board of Directors and its staff resulting in 20 women forming the nucleus of the Junior Auxiliary. Currently the Auxiliary consists of 162 total members who volunteered over 37,000 hours last year, raising $150,000 in funds to benefit patient care.

“Over seven decades, thousands of auxiliary volunteers have made major contributions to our community’s health through both funds raised and time given,” says Art Cecil, Auxiliary president. “We have an outstanding team of volunteers and look forward to making additional contributions to the Medical Center at Easton and its facilities.”

The Auxiliary’s funds are primarily raised through sales at Maggie’s Gift Shop, located at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton, and at the Bazaar at 121 Federal Street, which accepts donations of gently used clothing, accessories and small household items that are resold at reasonable prices.  Both retail establishments are staffed by Auxiliary volunteers.

In addition, Auxiliary volunteers are a resource in clinical areas both at the hospital and offsite, providing assistance to staff members, patients and visitors in multiple areas.  Free blood pressure screenings are also provided to the community by auxiliary volunteers at the Diagnostic and Imaging Center located at 10 Martin Court in Easton.

The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton is currently seeking volunteers in all areas of service.  To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact 410-822-1000, extension 5839.

Gift Card Incentive Offered to UM SRH Team Members for Auxiliary Volunteer Recruitment

On behalf of our fellow volunteers, we need your help in maintaining our local hospital volunteer auxiliaries – Chester River Hospital Center Auxiliary, Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary and the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton.

We are asking each UM Shore Regional Health team member to offer the name and contact information of any person they know who might be interested in joining one of our organizations. As a special incentive we are offering a $50 gift card to all those who provide us with the name of a person who becomes an active volunteer by being scheduled for a volunteer service with the Chestertown, Dorchester or Easton Auxiliary.

For decades, these volunteer organizations have made important contributions to the inpatient and outpatient medical facilities throughout the region by raising funds and assisting with daily operations at various sites. Many of our active volunteers have served the auxiliaries for a great number of years. Unfortunately the number of active volunteers in each of our auxiliaries has been declining, leading us to seek ways to attract new members.

Volunteering to benefit our local hospitals can be an extremely rewarding experience. Not only does volunteering for a hospital auxiliary contribute to the betterment of our local communities and the quality health care available to us and our family members, friends and neighbors; it also enables members to meet new people and explore new talents and interests.

Volunteer positions are currently available at each hospital, a number of outpatient locations, at our hospital gift shops and all three of our auxiliary-managed thrift shops – the Nearly New Shop in Chestertown, the Robin Hood Shop in Cambridge and The Bazaar at 121 Federal Street in Easton.

Please help us in this effort to sustain and grow our hospital auxiliaries so that we may continue to support the health care programs and services that are so very important to the communities served by UM Shore Regional Health.

Click here for the volunteer recruitment form. Please fill out and return to the preferred auxiliary coordinator listed at the bottom of the page via email. Volunteer coordinators will use the information provided to contact prospective volunteers.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

Sue Edson, President
Chester River
Hospital Center Auxiliary
