Join the Auxiliary

The Hospital and Hospice Auxiliaries support the mission of MHP through many annual fundraisers and generous financial contributions that provide additional services for our patients and their families. The work of these groups enhances the quality of care we are able to provide our patients and much of what we do would not be possible without their ongoing support.
