Kearney County Health Services Auxiliary has three primary functions:
Auxiliary Volunteers assist KCHS in its mission to "…support and improve the health of the community, provide high quality healthcare services in a cost effective manner that recognizes the psychosocial, spiritual, physical and cultural values of the individual." Specifically volunteers will distribute patient mail, do sewing and mending for patients, rotate magazines in the waiting rooms, provide support for the activities program, escort patients to clinics, and assist with patient information and other related support functions.
Community Relations & Public Health Education
Auxiliary Volunteers assist KCHS with public events, such as school health clinics, public immunization clinics, public health education meetings and community health fairs.
Auxiliary Volunteers assist KCHS in fund raising for specific capital equipment projects, primarily though a yearly event entitled Wine Wreaths and Whimsy held in November. The gala event shows off the many creative talents of Kearney County and surrounding communities with an assortment of holiday wreaths and other crafts. An auction of the donated items is held while the public enjoys a glass of wine, fine food and whimsical entertainment.
KCHS Hospital Auxiliary has a major influence in improving the scope and quality of the healthcare services provided by KCHS. New members are always welcome.For more information, please contact: Barbara Stutz, Volunteer Services Coordinator 308-832-3400 ext 2256.
