Hospital Auxiliary Provides New Bedside Tables at Maui Memorial
By Maui Now Staff
The Maui Memorial Medical Center Auxiliary recently donated 100 new bedside tables to brighten and improve the patient experience at the hospital.
The tables were installed throughout five different units at the hospital.
“We look for ways to help that will have a direct impact on our patients and their families, whether it’s with new technological equipment, blanket warmers or wheel chairs, the bottom line is that it has to improve our patient’s time with us,” said Amy Hanlon, MMMC Auxiliary president.
“Something that is meaningful to the patient, such as the five sleeper chairs we donated to allow family members to sleep over, is where we look to make a difference,” said Hanlon.
The MMMC Auxiliary works to supporting the hospital’s mission of providing medical services, while lending their time and energy as volunteers to the hospital staff and patients.
The 55 active members provide nearly 10,000 hours of service in 14 hospital departments through a variety of activities, which include working within the hospital where needed, holding the annual Harvest Sale, managing the hospital Gift Shop and holding vital fundraising initiatives.
