     The Southwest Medical Center Auxiliary volunteer team received the Hospital Auxiliaries of Kansas’s Gold Award for 2018 at the Kansas Hospital Association convention this month.

     The Gold Award is the highest level in the Award of Excellence category, and is provided to auxiliary groups who go above and beyond to promote community health and assist the hospitals they serve. HAK member auxiliaries have more than 7,500 members across 59 participating auxiliary groups in Kansas.

     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.
