The HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital Auxiliary was organized to promote and advance the welfare of the hospital through public relations, volunteer services and financial support. The Auxiliary offers volunteers the opportunity to provide special services for patients and visitors of St. Joseph's Hospital HSHS. In addition to volunteer duties, Auxiliary members are invited to five meetings a year. Four of the meetings typically feature a presentation on new or expanding hospital services, with the fifth being a Christmas brunch featuring entertainment and prizes. In addition to non-routine assistance needed by hospital departments, the Auxiliary offers many volunteer opportunities.
