Noyes Health Auxiliary
A Tradition of Caring and Sharing

Scholarships for Healthcare Education
The Noyes Health Auxiliary is able to offer up to $5000 in college scholarships to hard-working students, from high schools in our hospital service area, planning on entering the medical field. Fighting COVID-19 has shown the world how important essential health care professionals are to our existence. Scholarships will be granted to qualified students matriculating in an associate or bachelor’s degree program at an accredited college or university in medicine, nursing, or in another health-related field, including dentistry, ophthalmology, and pharmacy. We are glad we are able to offer this opportunity to help students in the Noyes Health service area defray the high expenses incurred by today’s college students.

Ice Cream for Noyes Health Employees
To express thanks to Noyes Health employees who are very supportive of the Auxiliary's projects, especially the Spice Box Gift Shop and Coffee Bar, the Auxiliary provides ice cream sundaes to all employees during Hospital Week in May. Employees at Noyes Health Services in Geneseo, Noyes Dialysis Center, Noyes Mental Health and Creekside Family Medicine also enjoy the ice cream.

In 2023, the Craft Boutique sale will be held during November and December near the Spice Box Coffee Bar and Gift Shop. Auxiliary members, Noyes employees, and friends of the Auxiliary craft baby gifts, holiday decorations, jewelry, baskets and afghans. Items might be crocheted, knitted, felted, sewn, paper crafted or wooden. Many are one of a kind and are always unique!
We have at least one, and possibly two, $5 jewelry sales annually. In the past, our annual sale has been held in conjunction with the Flower Sale in May. We may have another sale around Christmas depending on the availability of jewelry. Over 500 necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings are for sale in the hall outside the Spice Box Gift Shop - beautiful pieces that anyone would enjoy. Watch for notice of this sale in our bi-monthly Auxiliary newsletter.
