The holidays are fast approaching and once again Memorial Hospital Auxiliary's attention is turned to its yearly project - the Tree of Remembrance.
The Auxiliary is able to assist the hospital in purchasing needed equipment for various departments through the community's generous donations/memorials each year. Funds collected this year will be used to purchase two Barrier-Free® Examination Tables for the Memorial Hospital Specialty Clinic. To really care for people, we must understand the patients we care for today—and tomorrow. With an increasingly aging population, our patients may need assistance with accessing the exam table. With an incredible 18 inch low height, Ritter Barrier-Free® Power Exam Tables are designed to make it easy for our Specialty Clinic to accommodate the elderly and patients with disabilities easily and efficiently. These tables are designed to allow patients to feel more stable and relaxed while they’re waiting or during their consultation as their feet rest comfortably on the floor.
The year 2021 has brought many fundraising challenges to the community and the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. Due to COVID-19 precautions the Gift Shop was closed periodically and the numerous bake sales and raffles usually held throughout the year were canceled. Their many fundraisers aid Memorial Hospital in ensuring patient care, convenience and the latest technology are available to provide the best quality care possible. This year’s Tree of Remembrance contributions will make up the majority of their fundraising for the year. Giving this year, is more important than ever. During the holiday season we invite you to make a contribution in honor of a loved one. Your contribution and memoriam are recognized weekly in the Chester Herald Tribune. Donations and memorials can be mailed to:
