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.

Come to our new members event to learn more about the activities of the Auxiliary.  Many of the men and women who are current members of this active group will be in attendance and will be glad to share their experiences.

Join us on Thursday, June 15th from 4:30 PM – 7:00 PM at the Blair House/ Assisted Living, lower level, Milford, MA.  Guest speakers will be the Medical Center President Ed Kelly speaking at 5-5:30pm with Auxiliary President Andra Stone welcoming guests at 4:30 pm.

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.

Please join us Thursday evening June 15th.  Refreshments will be served.

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
