Auxiliary Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Caring for our Community
MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital would not be where it is today without the continued support of the hospital’s Auxiliary. Since the very beginning of the Auxiliary in 1916, patient comfort has been its primary focus. Throughout the past 100 years, the Auxiliary has donated funding for projects small and large – from breast pumps to building renovations. It is likely, that at some point during the hospital’s history, the Auxiliary has touched almost every department at the hospital. The Auxiliary has donated more than $5 million to the hospital during the past 100 years.
“Our hospital, its associates and the community can never repay the Auxiliary for everything they have done – for the millions of dollars they have raised and the countless hours they have donated,” said Christine Wray, president of MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital. “All we can do is say thank you to them. They have given us a priceless gift and we are eternally grateful.”
