Despite having the COVID-19 pandemic curtail volunteer and fundraising activities, Memorial’s Auxiliary presented $50,000 and 8,300 service hours to Memorial for 2020. Their donation is being used to purchase a new EEG machine for the cardiovascular department.
Memorial Hospital’s Auxiliary installed their 2021 officers in a small, socially distanced ceremony in December. Memorial Hospital President Mike McManus presided over the installation.
