Unity Medical Center Auxiliary
The Unity Hospital Auxiliary at the present time have 15 active, inactive and non members who contribute much time & talent in making items such as embroidered dishtowels, baby quilts, receiving blankets & baby washcloths which are stored in a display case in the clinic lobby and at the holiday bazaar. Other items include dishcloths, hand crafted cards and scrubbies.
In the spring the members are treated to a lovely luncheon. The Silver Tea is held on the Tuesday during Hospital Week to show our appreciation for the staff and the public is invited.
The purpose of the Auxiliary is to help the hospital purchase items that would directly benefit the patients. Once a year they give a donation to the Valley Ambulance and make ornaments which are given to those attending the Tree of Light ceremony that is held in December.
Meetings for the Auxiliary are from 1pm-3pm every Tuesday on the 2nd floor of the hospital with the exception of a break after the Holiday Bazaar until the first Tuesday in January.
Unity Medical Center Hospice
The UMC Hospice program has 15 volunteers dedicated to caring for people in our community. These volunteers touch the lives of patients and families. They have the honor to help and witness end-of-life transitions. Last year these UMC Hospice volunteers provided 167 hours of helping hospice patients and families, and therefore provided cost savings of nearly $2,500. Also, the volunteers raised more than $4,000 through the annual Tree of Light ceremony.
Special training is required to be a UMC Hospice volunteer. Please call Sandra at 701-352-9399 for more information on how you can help.
