The Auxiliary is an all-volunteer group whose purpose is to promote and advance the welfare of St John’s Medical Center in these ways: by educating members so they may serve as community ambassadors for the Medical Center, through fundraising activities, and by service to the hospital and its patients.Funds raised by the Auxiliary, through annual events such as the Spring Fling Gala and the Charity Golf Tournament, go directly toward the fulfillment of pledges to the Medical Center for specific equipment or services.

About St. John’s Auxiliary
Our group is made up of volunteers committed to the Medical Center’s mission. We serve as an advocacy group for the hospital and we host educational programs to inform the community about the importance of the hospital and raise funds to support critical needs.
Over our long history, we have purchased essential medical equipment, an activity bus for the Living Center, and have sponsored educational programs. Since 1974, we have provided more than $2 million to benefit St. John’s.
Our members make a huge, positive impact in our community!
"Joining the Auxiliary is a fun and rewarding way to collaborate with many amazing members of our community. All are welcome!"
We meet on the first Thursday of every month in the Moose/Wapiti Classrooms at SJMC. In March, June, September, and December, we host an evening social at the home of one of our members.
