The Auxiliary of Lawrence + Memorial Hospital was established in 1914. For 100 years, this dedicated group has been supporting the Hospital as it pursues its mission of improving the health of the region. Since its inception, the Auxiliary has raised more than $2 million for the Hospital -- funding that is often essential for supporting ongoing programs and services. Fundraising events have purchased equipment or provided financial support for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), parenting programs, massage and alternative health programs, the chaplaincy, Career Day, the magazine cart, the sewing group, blood pressure monitoring, the women’s heart health initiatives, the Cancer Center, and much more.
