Noyes Health Auxiliary
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.
Auxiliary Donations to Noyes Hospital
The proceeds of the Auxiliary fundraisers are donated to Noyes Hospital. The most recent donations are:
- 2016 - $65,500 to Noyes Health for the Mary Saunders Beiermann Emergency Department. This payment was the third payment toward the Auxiliary's $305,500 commitment in 2014. To date, $198,000 has been given to Noyes Health toward that pledge. An additional $10,000 was donated to Noyes Health from the proceeds of "A Night for Noyes," $2500 of which was designated to underwrite a dressing room in the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center.

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 2016 were announced at the Auxiliary Dinner Meeting in April. The recipients were Melissa Kirsop from Perry Central School, Jacob Mesi from Avon High School and Alexis Rudesil from Hornell High School. Melissa would like to become an Orthodontist. Jacob plans on becoming a Neurosurgeon. Alexis' goal is to work in Oncology and/or Prosthetics Design. An additional $300 in scholarships is given to graduating students of the Health Careers Academy, part of the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership.
