Since its inception, the Eaton Rapids Medical Center Auxiliary has continued to provide volunteers and financial support to the hospital. Together, Eaton Rapids Medical Center and Auxiliary work hand-in-hand to improve healthcare for residents of the greater Eaton Rapids Area.
The men and women of the Auxiliary work on various fundraising events such as the annual Fall Gala Dinner and Auction as well as the Tree of Love Ornament Sale. The Auxiliary also operates the Owl's Perch Gift Shop, located in the main lobby of the medical center. Funds raised are used for facility improvements and equipment purchases exclusively at Eaton Rapids Medical Center.
The Auxiliary holds four general membership meetings each year featuring informative speakers covering a variety of topics. Our members have diverse backgrounds, ranging from working professionals to retirees. Membership dues are $10.00 per year for those that donate 30 or more service hours annually.
Applications for membership are available in the hospital lobby, the Owl's Perch Gift Shop

Auxiliary Gala Raises $7,700 for Pediatric Colonoscope
The Eaton Rapids Medical Center Auxiliary held the Fall Gala Dinner & Auction fundraiser at The English Inn's Medovue Hall on October 12, 2012. Guests enjoyed an outstanding dinner and fellowship. Entertainment was provided by the Spartan Dischords, an a capella group from Michigan State University. The group sang songs from a variety of artists, including a few hits from Jason Mraz and Katy Perry. A silent auction was held with more than 50 items donated by area merchants and individuals, including hand-crafted furniture, holiday decorations, power tools, jewelry, hotel packages and dinner gift certificates. The proceeds from the event will be used towards purchasing a pediatric colonoscope for the ERMC Specialty Clinics' gastroenterology services.
