Noyes Health Auxiliary

Piggy banks

A Tradition of Caring and Sharing

The Hospital Auxiliary was formed in 1952 with the original mission to give patient service. Today's Auxiliary focuses its efforts on fundraising projects to support Noyes Health and benefit the community.

Auxiliary Membership Requirements

To fulfill membership requirements, each active member of the Auxiliary is asked to participate in at least one fundraising event each year. The Auxiliary projects are described below. All members are kept informed of upcoming events through the Auxiliary Newsletter. Patronage of the events by all Auxiliary members is encouraged and appreciated. Membership applications are available in the Spice Box Gift Shop.

Scholarships for Healthcare Education

In 1977, the Auxiliary established a scholarship program. Today, Noyes Auxiliary provides up to $5,000 in scholarships each year to high school seniors in the Noyes Health service area interested in careers in a health-related field. The scholarship recipients for 2017 were announced at the Auxiliary Dinner Meeting in April. The recipients were Alison Meyers, Geneseo Central School; Elizabeth Redman, Livonia High School; Kristin Talbot, Hornell High School; and Mikayla Tillotson, Pavilion High School.  Alison plans to attend Middlebury College with the goal of becoming a Pediatric Neurologist.  Elizabeth (also known as Lily) plans to attend Nazareth college and become a Speech/Language Pathologist.  Kristin plans to attend RIT and become a Physician's Assistant.  Mikayla will be attending St. John Fisher to become a Family Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant.
