Auxiliary Membership

The Western Maryland Health System Auxiliary's objective and purpose is to assist UPMC Western Maryland in its charitable and humane work.

The WMHS Auxiliary functions as ambassadors, hospital volunteers, fundraisers, and public relations for UPMC Western Maryland and is an active member of the Maryland Association of Hospital Auxiliaries. Founded in 2004 through the consolidation of the Memorial and Sacred Heart Hospital Auxiliaries, today’s WMHS Auxiliary is comprised of more than 150 men and women who offer their dues and service to promote the advancement of superior healthcare for our region. Keep up with the WMHS Auxiliary on Facebook or click here for a brochure on how to join this vital organization. Biennial dues are billed in August through September, and a new directory is published in October every other year.
