Making an Impact

Interested in meeting the changing needs within Magee-Womens Hospital, the Women's Auxiliary participates in projects that raise funds for programs, which advance patient care and comfort.

The group has contributed to major hospital initiatives such as the expansion of Magee-Womens Research Institute, the renovation of Magee’s neonatal intensive care unit, and equipment upgrades in the Scott L. Williams, MD Breast Care Center.

Through their Research Endowment, the auxiliary funds various research projects at Magee. They also contributed to funding a new breast imaging ultra sound probe and upgraded the existing probe, and covered some costs of breast cancer educational materials.

More recently, they pledged $1 million to create a new endowment called the Magee Auxiliary Research Scholar Program (MARS). This endowment was combined with a preexisting endowment, for a total of $2 million to support a renowned women’s health researcher.

In addition, the Women’s Auxiliary has supported the Courtyard Brick Campaign by purchasing many bricks in honor of volunteers, and are responsible for upgrading the murals on the walls on the way to Magee’s cafeteria showcasing the hospital’s rich history.

The members continue to fund programs and projects that are most compatible with the auxiliary's ideals and goals. Their hard work and dedication has truly made an impact on the health of women and infants.
