Ozark Health Auxiliary
Ozark Health Medical Center Auxiliary was established in 1998 with a membership of six.
In 2001 joined the Arkansas Hospital Auxiliary Association with a membership of eight.
Our Mission Statement:
“The auxiliary exists for the sole purpose of furthering the aims and objectives of the Ozark Health Inc. in ways approved by the hospital Board of Directors and the Administration. Along with the hospital/nursing home, our mission is to help provide the best possible care for patients while promoting good health. Auxiliary membership is the most effective means yet developed for channeling the energy of citizens in the community who, by voluntary association, wish to support their hospital/nursing home by contributing time, talent or money. It is thus an entity having a distinctive mission that cannot be duplicated by any department or any other organization within the hospital/nursing home. There is no substitute for the hospital/nursing home Auxiliary.”
Currently we have 25 active members and 5 on leave for a total membership of 30.
