Harrington Hospital Auxiliary

The Harrington Auxiliary is a dedicated group of individuals who have joined together since 1932 to volunteer their time and services to Harrington and the community. We work to create an atmosphere of friendliness, helpfulness and goodwill. We financially support programs and services that benefit the mission of  Harrington HealthCare System, as well as the community.

About our Membership

We cordially invite you to join our organization. We are looking for members of all ages to participate in a variety of activities and subcommittees. It is a great opportunity to give back to your local healthcare system and your community by applying your interest, talents and expertise to the Auxiliary. You can provide the most precious of all gifts–your time.

We also invite you to join us at our quarterly membership luncheons at local restaurants. They include programs which provide us with an afternoon of entertainment, education and socializing.

Please consider becoming part of a great support team with the Auxiliary! For more information view our brochure or email us.
