Governor Cuomo Proclaims May 2 as Healthcare Auxilian Day
Governor Andrew Cuomo has proclaimed May 2, 2018 as Healthcare Auxilian Day in New York State to recognize the dedicated auxilians who annually donate millions of hours of service to their healthcare facilities and to their communities.
Ellenville Regional Hospital is grateful to the Ellenville Regional Hospital Auxiliary, and celebrates the work and support that the auxilians provide throughout the year. During the past year, the Auxiliary to Ellenville Regional Hospital has successfully operated the Hospital Gift Shop, provided countless volunteer hours in the hospital serving our patients and visitors, and continued in their fundraising efforts through the Annual Auxiliary Luncheon, bake sales, Broadway theater trip, and other endeavors.
New York State has more than 75,000 healthcare auxilians who initiate, fund, and volunteer for a wide variety of patient and family care services—from outpatient clinics to intensive care units. They sponsor community health fairs, health screenings, blood banks, and wellness lecture series; raise funds for hospital and nursing home equipment; and organize and underwrite outreach programs in their communities.
