Marlborough – On Sept. 14, UMass Memorial-Marlborough Hospital hosted a reception honoring and thanking the members of the Hospital Auxiliary for their dedication and commitment to the hospital.
After several months of thoughtful and lengthy discussions, a decision was recently made by the Auxiliary Board to disband and establish a new direction for the auxiliary.
In collaboration with Marlborough Hospital’s administration, the legacy of the auxiliary will continue through the Marlborough Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship. Each year, students interested in pursuing a career in health care from the communities the hospital serves will have the opportunity to apply for an auxiliary scholarship. There will be a Marlborough Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship Committee that will work with hospital administration to establish criteria, review applications and select scholarship recipients.
“Through the years, the auxiliary has raised a tremendous amount of money for the hospital and has awarded over $70,000 in scholarships,” president and CEO Steve Roach stated at the reception. “It is with mixed emotions that we are here today. On behalf of the hospital and our patients, thank you for all of your hard work and for all of your fundraising efforts.”
“We are proud of the auxiliary’s accomplishments and we look forward to continuing the legacy by awarding Marlborough Hospital Auxiliary Scholarships to worthy students who have chosen health care as a career,” said Ellen Carlucci, vice president of development. “We will continue to raise monies to fund these scholarships.”
