The Ascension Calumet Hospital Auxiliary/Volunteers provide service to Ascension Calumet Hospital and its patients and visitors, aid in the support and delivery of high quality personalized care and strengthen the understanding between the hospital and the community.
Year-round the CMC Auxiliary fundraises in a variety of ways to cultivate positive community impact. Offering book and craft sales, geranium and mum sales, soup and salad luncheons, ice cream socials, holiday bake sales, and concerts. Funds derived from these events make it possible for the Auxiliary to purchase medical equipment that would otherwise be impossible. Items such as treatment recliners, ultrasound carts, portable video monitors, portable phones, utility carts, wheelchairs, cautery machine, endoscopy scope, and many more. In addition, the Ascension Calumet Hospital Gift Shop is fully staffed and operated by the CMC Auxiliary. All proceeds from the Gift Shop support the Auxiliary. The CMC Auxiliary also sponsors various programs each year, such as the student scholarship program, Mindful Meditation classes, and Progressive Agricultural Safety Day.
