Volunteering at St. Joseph Memorial Hospital

St. Joseph Memorial Hospital Auxiliary

The Hospital Auxiliary was organized at St. Andrew’s Hospital in April 1956. Meetings are held six times per year during the odd months. These meetings provide an opportunity for the Auxiliary to make and implement initiatives throughout the year. It is also a time for networking with other members.

Today, St. Joseph Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has just under. Annual dues of $5.00 are payable in March. All members receive a newsletter twice each year.
