About the Auxiliary & Foundation

The Morris Hospital Auxiliary and Foundation share a mission to engage the community in philanthropic support for Morris Hospital. Both organizations provide for programs and equipment purchases which may not otherwise be possible for the Hospital or would require more time for the Hospital to fund through its operations.

Throughout the year, the Morris Hospital Auxiliary and Foundation make possible many different Hospital programs and services. These programs include Camp 911, Employee and Volunteer Emergency/Disaster Hardship Relief, Patient Transportation, LifeLife(R), Medication Dispenser Program, Rhythm of our Youth, Scholarships, and the Frederick E. Butts Serenity Garden.

Each governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Auxiliary and Foundation receive gifts of all sizes from individuals, local businesses, grantors, employees and physicians, grateful patients and their families, and others who are invested in the health of our community.
