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.
