The Auxiliary of Indiana Regional Medical Center continues supporting since 1915

On January 16, 1915 - Miss McKnight presented to the Executive Committee her views on the formation of an auxiliary board for the purpose of assisting in the care and management of the hospital. After some discussion, Mr. Scott made a motion that a Hospital Auxiliary Board be established and organized. One woman from each of several churches was chosen to represent the said church and thus the hospital auxiliary was formed. Mrs. D.B. Taylor was the first President and there were initially 12 members.

Today, the IRMC Auxiliary has grown to 160 members who have given thousands of hours helping IRMC meet the medical needs of Our community.

The Auxiliary always welcomes new members who may participate on special fundraising events or simply support activities through annual membership dues. The success of the Auxiliary's projects is directly attributed to the hard work and dedication of its committee members. Auxiliary funding has supported countless programs at the hospital over the years, and the group has also been a morale booster, with a powerful sense of purpose and camaraderie carried through the decades.

How the funds have been used

The Auxiliary members vote on the allocation of all funds. In recent years, the funds have been directed to purchasing rockers for the It’s A Wonderful New Life Maternity Center and a urine analyzer for the same department. In years past the main funding for the Lifeline Program was provided by the IRMC auxiliary; however, in more recent years the funds have been directed to maintaining and providing the services for the shuttle. The shuttle van escorts on average 1,570 patients per month to the front doors and logs over 900 monthly miles.

Mission

Our purpose shall be to promote and to advance the welfare of the Indiana Regional Medical Center (IRMC). This purpose shall be accomplished through public relations activities and through service to the hospital and its patients.
