Jackson County Regional Health Center Auxiliary, is comprised of more than 75 men and women from all over the county and surrounding area.
In recent years the Auxiliary has supported the hospital by providing funds for the purchase of equipment throughout the hospital, car seats for transporting infants, hospital operating room equipment, wheelchairs, ambulance needs such as life saving equipment, stryker power cot and providing partial scholarships to students graduating from high schools in the immediate area.
The auxiliary funds are raised by bake sales, book sales, Bridge Marathon and managing the Gift Shop located in the main lobby of the hospital. The Auxiliary Gift Shop is stocked and staffed by Auxiliary volunteers five days per week. Hours are 9-12 and 1-4 daily. Gift certificates are available and all purchases are tax FREE!
The Auxiliary sponsors a scholarship program which is administered by a Scholarship Committee. The scholarships are given to those students who apply that are interested in pursing a career in the medical fields: nursing, doctor, pharmacy, physical therapy, dietary, administration and more. Applications may be obtained at the switch board during regular business hours.
Dues for the Auxiliary are $5 per year for active members and $8 per year for sustaining members. The Auxiliary is always looking for new members. The Auxiliary is open to all who might be interested in helping out the community. The only requirement is that you must be willing to work three hours per month in the Gift Shop.
