Emanate Health Inter-Community Hospital Auxiliary
Many volunteer opportunities are available that have a huge impact on the lives of patients, visitors and employees.
The Emanate Health Inter-Community Hospital (ICH) Auxiliary is a group of volunteers who focus on fundraising to help the hospital grow and improve. Whether it's for a new piece of medical equipment or a hospital renovation, the Auxiliary volunteers roll up their sleeves and get to work.
The Auxiliary was founded in 1945 by Eleanor Wilson and Charlotte Season with a group of eight volunteers. Its first project was to furnish the hospital nursery.

“Why I Joined the ICH Auxiliary”
- “I recall the wonderful care and kindness that the doctors, nurses and volunteers provided to my entire family while my father was at Inter-Community Hospital and decided that I wanted to do this someday. I joined the Auxiliary once I retired and had the time to help.”
- “Inter-Community Hospital has provided the best medical care to me for several years. I became a member of the Auxiliary to help spread the word about the great services and give back to the hospital and community.”
- “My children and granddaughter are adults now and while I am loved, I am not needed like I used to be. I have so much time on my hands. By joining the Auxiliary, I feel needed again. And I have a purpose.”
