Auxiliary Board

Peconic Bay Medical Center Auxiliary is a non-profit organization, founded in 1951, which supports and complements patient care and community service at Peconic Bay Medical Center by assisting patients, relatives and visitors in a responsible manner with compassion and courtesy.

Making our mission possible:

The Auxiliary Board is committed to serving the entire medical center community fostering quality, compassionate and comprehensive care through hands-on volunteering and innovative fundraising. Board members are selected through an election process, as determined by the Auxiliary By-Law.

How we work with the community:

Auxiliary Board members proudly serve as ambassadors between the hospital and the community. The Board increases community awareness of hospital services through local events, newsletters, announcements and communications with friends, neighbors and colleagues. We aim to be the voice of the communities served by Peconic Bay Medical Center and always welcome new ideas for involvement.

How we make it all happen:

The Auxiliary Board members work hard to promote Peconic Bay Medical Center through increased community awareness and vital fundraising initiatives. We organize large and small events, operate the Gift Shop within the hospital, organize raffles and make crafts, among many other activities throughout the year.

The proceeds from these Auxiliary initiatives are donated to the hospital and have helped fund many important needs over the decades such as:

  • Purchasing medical equipment, including beds, wheelchairs rehabilitation equipment, etc…
  • Renovating special care units, among other essential capital needs

In addition to raising approximately $250,000 annually, through all the various activities, the Peconic Bay Medical Center Auxiliary committed to and succeeded in raising an additional $1 million over 10 years (2011 – 2020) to support the Building Upon The Promise Of Excellence Campaign (Peconic Bay Medical Center Foundation).
