The Auxiliary exists to financially support ERMC as well as to provide committed volunteers who staff our gift shop and plan and organize events such as the Gala and Purse Bingo. Funds raised are given to the hospital for improvements to the facility and for equipment purchases. Most recently, the Auxiliary gave $40,000 toward the Omnicell Medication Dispensing System. Their dedication to working to improve health care for our patients is commendable.
