Our mission is to provide the Medical Center, its patients and community with support through fundraising efforts.  Since its founding, the Auxiliary has raised close to $1 million for Milford Regional’s expansion and renovation projects – making it a lead donor to all of the Medical Center’s capital campaigns.

Become a member of a very successful organization that is an active part of our community and our regional hospital serving a region of 20-plus towns. Learn how the Auxiliary supports the hospital, its history, accomplishments and future events.

The Auxiliary conducts many fundraisers (including the Taste of the Towns) throughout the year which provides support to Milford Regional Medical Center.  YOU could be part of the exciting future of the MRMC Auxiliary.

Auxiliary Success Stories

Proceeds from sales and events go a long way to help ensure the best patient care possible at all Milford Regional affiliates. The Auxiliary is uniquely positioned to fund helpful equipment or staff training that would otherwise be too expensive to purchase through normal operating budgets, but not expensive enough to qualify for state or federal grants. Departments determine their need, based on patient feedback and ideas from staff.

Examples of Items Funded by MRMC Auxiliary

  • Wireless Access and iPads for PT/OT patients
  • Blanket Warmers for Emergency Department
  • Bariatric Wheelchair
  • Recumbant Exercise Bike for Cardiac Rehab
  • Wall Art in Cardio Vascular testing area
  • Graston Training and other Education for Staff
  • Titmus Machine for Occupational Health
  • Air Transfer Unit & Mavig Single Pilot Lower Body Protector for Cardiac Catheter Lab
  • New Carpet in Radiology
  • Gifts for Volunteers
  • Modern television remotes for each patient
  • Continuing education for staff/employees
  • Educational sponsorships for high school graduates

The Auxiliary will continue to fund projects like these, in addition to generously designating funds to Milford Regional’s Campaign for Excellence to benefit the new building project.
