The ACMC Auxiliary receiving their five-star rating from the Arkansas Hospital Auxiliary Association
We are dedicated to helping people coming into the hospital in any way we can.
We provide assistance in showing people where they need to go for services, pushing wheelchairs. We provide chemo baskets of homemade goodies every Monday to those people having chemo.
We sponsor a Tree of Love each Fall where we ask people to donate $l.00 in honor or in memory of a loved one. We then display those names in the lobby during the month of December. The money we collect is used for our Scholarship Fund.
We provide two $l000 scholarships each year to deserving students who wish to go into nursing.
We furnish stuffed animals to the X-ray Dept, the Lab, and the ER. This is geared to help children who are afraid of whatever procedure they are having and give them comfort.
We sponsor a scrub sale twice a year for the hospital employees, nursing home workers, etc. The money we make goes to purchase needed items for the hospital.
We take the juice and coffee carts around to the patients rooms and offer magazines and games.
We sponsor the HELP program which provides safety stickers to be worn inside bicycle helmets giving critical information to responders in the event of a bicycle wreck.
We sponsor the WHALE program in which we supply informational items and stickers to be placed in the rear window of automobiles carrying infants and stickers to be placed on the infant seats giving medical or other information in the event of an accident.
We have several Bake Sales a year for the employees and we use the proceeds to go to our Memorial Fund.
We provide a Christmas party for the employees of the hospital each year to show our appreciation for them.
We provide baskets of goodies to the doctors for Doctor's Week.
Each year in May, we take the money we've made that year and purchase items needed from the Capital Needs List for the hospital.
These are some of the activities and programs offered by the Auxiliary.
