Auxiliary Series – Sinai Hospital

Did you know that every LifeBridge Health hospital has an auxiliary, which is a group of dedicated volunteers who works closely with each hospital to raise funds and organize events for patients, their families and the community?

Strategic Marketing and Communications intern, Marisa Rubin, recently interviewed the LifeBridge Health auxiliary presidents to learn about what they do and how their work benefits the hospitals. In this final blog post in our series, you will learn more about the Sinai Hospital Auxiliary.

For Sinai Hospital Auxiliary President Joann Nagy, having an auxiliary means the opportunity to give back internally and externally. “The Sinai Hospital Auxiliary was founded in 1948 and is a non-profit, volunteer organization,” she said.

The auxiliary at Sinai promotes positive relationships between Sinai Hospital and the Joann Auxiliarycommunity. “Our mission is to serve patients, families and the members of the surrounding community,” Nagy explained.

The auxiliary at Sinai does more than just that though. Their initiatives include making hand-knitted caps for newborns, creating and donating pediatric recreation and comfort toys, as well as proposing major donations and gifts for hospital construction, equipment and renovations. In addition, members also offer newborn services such as baby photos, baby bracelets and decorative birth certificates.

“We also build upon and sustain Sinai’s Jewish heritage through holiday observances extended to patients, their families and the Sinai Hospital staff,” said Nagy.

She added, “For 68 years, the Sinai Hospital Auxiliary has been serving the hospital and surrounding community, and it continues to serve the hospital and community as it will for many years to come.”

When asked if there was anything she would change about the program to better Sinai, she added, “Looking forward, I would like to expand our programs and services to meet future needs.”
