Enter any hospital almost anywhere and you will likely see ladies, usually senior citizens, dressed in pink smocks busy helping patients.
The Hospital Auxiliary at Southwest Health System give directions and offer a friendly face to staff, patients and visitors. They make sure the experience here at the hospital is as comfortable as possible.
Proceeds from the gift shop go to assist the hospital in various ways, including providing scholarships for some who want to enroll in the nursing program.
Ask any volunteer about an opportunity to become a member of the Auxiliary. Applications may be obtained at the Information Desk located on the ground level.
