The Tyrone Hospital Auxiliary was established in 1947. The organization consists of community volunteers who conduct a variety of activities to support Tyrone Hospital.
In its early years it raised funds that supported the actual creation and construction of Tyrone Hospital. Over the years the Auxiliary has supported many hospital projects and purchased a variety of medical and other equipment for the hospital. One of the major projects supported by the Auxiliary is providing financial support for the operation of the Care Car. The Care Car provides Tyrone area residents with free transportation to Tyrone Hospital and to doctor's offices in Tyrone that are affiliated with Tyrone Hospital to support access to healthcare services.
The Auxiliary conducts fund rasiers during several months of the year including craft, bake and soup sales. They also conduct special events for patients and hospital staff on certain holidays. They adorn the hospital each year during the Christmas holiday season, providing a decorated Christmas tree for the hospital's main lobby and wreaths for the exterior of the hospital.
The Tyrone Hospital Auxiliary welcomes new members. For more information contact the Auxiliary at P.O. Box 31 Tyrone, PA 16686 or by calling (814) 632-7887.
