Annual Report

Additional Auxiliary Information

From its small beginnings in 1888, this volunteer service has grown into the PinnacleHealth Auxiliary and today serves all PinnacleHealth Hospital campuses. Supporting PinnacleHealth and area residents through scholarships and education with roots that stretch back 125 years, the PinnacleHealth Auxiliary has a long history of supporting the needs of Central Pennsylvania residents.

Through events, the women and men of the Auxiliary volunteer their time to financially support various PinnacleHealth programs and services. Auxiliary members are devoted to furthering the system’s mission and helping to preserve the high-quality, compassionate care for which its hospitals and staff members are known.

Each year, the Auxiliary raises approximately $300,000 through the following activities: 

In addition to raising funds for PinnacleHealth, the Auxiliary also provides scholarships for promising students pursing careers; educates local students through its annual Children’s Health Fair; and supports and operates the Bailey House – a “home away from home” for patients and families from outside the Harrisburg area.
