What is the Auxiliary?

Founded on a tradition of giving the Guthrie County Hospital Auxiliary is a non-profit service organization whose mission is to work in conjunction with the Guthrie County Hospital by volunteering to promote the health of our community.

This volunteer organization augments the programs and services of Guthrie County Hospital by hosting numerous fundraising activities throughout the year, presenting monetary gifts to the hospital to aid in the purchase of new equipment. Their contributions are far reaching and provide valuable benefits for the patients, families and employees of Guthrie County Hospital.


The Auxiliary welcomes new members and encourages interested individuals to join. Through a membership fee, each person contributes to the success of our organization’s goals. An active member can be involved in Auxiliary business meetings or help with fundraisers and other hospital projects. If being a supporting member is your choice, you can be a member in name only, or choose to be involved in a project. The choices are available and easily marked on the enclosed membership card.

We sincerely hope you will join the Auxiliary as we work together to keep our hospital a vital part of our community and area.
