UPMC Hanover Auxilary

The Hanover Hospital Auxiliary held its first meeting in October 1925, one year before the official opening of the hospital. Sewing linens for the new hospital was one of the first contributions of the Auxiliary. This group continued its work, along with other supportive projects, until 1954. At that time, the Auxiliary Hospitality Shop opened its doors, offering patients, staff and visitors a variety of unique gifts.

In the years since its inception, the Auxiliary has awarded over $190,000 in grants to employees for continuing education, purchased the hospital's courtesy vans, and has helped in the purchase of hospital equipment.

The Auxiliary supports UPMC Hanover through the following services:

  • Courtesy Van: providing transportation to and from the hospital, free of charge to those in need.
  • Continuing Education: providing over $10,000 annually to employees who are enrolled in health-related educational programs.
  • Hospitality Shop: providing patients, staff, and the community with a variety of gift and convenience items.
  • Student Education Services: providing an annual Health Fair.
  • Community Outreach: providing assistance for medical costs to less fortunate families through the Special Needs Fund.
  • Vending: providing vending services throughout the hospital and satellite facilities.
