Southwest Medical Center Auxillary Team Recieves Gold Award of Excellence

The Southwest Medical Center Auxiliary team recently received a Gold Award of Excellence at the Kansas Hospital Association state convention held in Wichita, Kansas. This is the second consecutive year this group has captured this top honor.

The “Gold Award” is the highest honor given by the Hospital Auxiliaries of Kansas (HAK) to groups who go above and beyond to promote community health and assist the hospitals they serve. To earn this award, members must meet a variety of criteria such as participate in health-related community service activities, give direct service to the hospital and fundraise for health career scholarships.

This year, the auxiliary has funded more than $45,000 in equipment purchases. These special patient care items help team members deliver excellent care for patients admitted to Southwest Medical Center.

Southwest Medical Center’s Auxiliary volunteers are always seeking new members of all ages to serve the Liberal community. Annual membership dues of $10 a year are applied towards local medical scholarships, and members can participate in service activities that support patient care. If you are interested in becoming a member of the SWMC Auxiliary, please contact the SWMC Auxiliary Gift Shop at (620) 629-6899.
