The Auxiliary of Good Samaritan Hospital
Are you looking for a positive way in which to volunteer or share your
time with the community? Then you may wish to consider taking part in
the activities of the Good Samaritan Hospital Auxiliary.
What is the Auxiliary?
The Auxiliary is a support group of Good Samaritan Hospital.
Since 1951 the dedicated members of the Auxiliary have contributed to
the livelihood of the hospital through fundraising events, volunteer work
and the operation of the gift shop. Annual proceeds from these activities
help support vital programs and services.
Some of the past projects that have benefited from these activities are
facility and program improvements in the areas of the Perinatal Center,
the Child Care Center, the Breast Care Center, and the Emergency Room.
Funds have also been used to purchase two patient transport vehicles,
car seats for newborns of needy parents, and in the funding of the annual
Junior Volunteer Scholarships given to worthy community area students
planning to make healthcare their future career choice.
Who are the Members?
Auxiliary members share a deep affection for Good Samaritan Hospital. They
include former patients, community and business leaders, physicians or
spouses of physicians, and long-standing friends of the hospital from
our surrounding communities.
In addition to vital fundraising activities, members and their guests gather
at three general meetings during the year: Fall, Winter and Spring –
to hear timely medical lectures given by in-house specialists or to take
part in tours and events around Los Angeles. Each meeting offers education,
camaraderie, and a delicious lunch at a local restaurant or a member’s home.
