About DMH Auxiliary
Established in 1954, the DMH Auxiliary is a not-for-profit organization of more than 350 community volunteers dedicated to promoting, up holding and advancing the mission and values of Decatur Memorial Hospital. This purpose is accomplished through direct service to the hospital, its patients and guests through Auxiliary-sponsored service projects and through sponsorship of fund-raising activities directed toward enhanced provision of patient equipment and services for the hospital. Over its 60-year history, the Auxiliary has raised and subsequently contributed more than $7.6 million to the hospital.
