The TriState Health Auxiliary is a non-profit organization providing thousands of hours of service throughout the hospital including the management and staffing of the front lobby information; the management and staffing of the admissions and day/outpatient surgery waiting rooms; managing and staffing of the hospital gift shop; and, planning fundraising events throughout the year to benefit the hospital.

How did the Auxiliary begin?

In 1955, a group of women volunteered to serve the new fledgling TriState Health in any way possible. This was the beginning of the TriState Health Auxiliary. The group was originally formed of twelve separate guilds, each of which was named after members of the original Board of Directors of the Hospital. As the number of the Guilds decreased, the format was revised. Today, the Auxiliary includes men and women who volunteer their time as one Auxiliary.
