Auxilians -- A Unique Group of Volunteers
Most people have at least some idea of what healthcare volunteers do. But many don't know about the work of a special group of volunteers, those that belong to the medical center Auxiliary. Cape Regional Medical Center Auxiliary has a proud history. Back in 1951, a group of women stepped in to raise funds that would help the hospital become a reality.
To continue this financial support for necessary healthcare services, women and men in Cape May County grouped together and formed our present Auxiliary. The Auxiliary's Board was formed to help expand and coordinate the activities begun by numerous individuals. The present-day Auxiliary has five branches.
Activities sponsored by the Auxiliary include
operation of the Et Cetera and Gift Shops. All branches assist
Board-sponsored fundraising projects as well as additional projects of
their own. Monies raised by the branches are presented to the hospital.
Over the years the Auxiliary contributions have helped build the Early
Education Center, the helipad, the pediatrics department, Emergency Room
and most recently they completed a $1.0 million pledge for the ICU
Renovation and in 2012 made a $1.0 million pledge in support of the
Cancer Care Center Expansions, in addition to new equipment for various
departments. The Auxiliary welcomes your inquiries for more information
on membership and its activities. Please call 609-463-2367.
