Friends of Sartori Memorial Hospital

Your Community Hospital - Right Where You Live

The Sartori Auxiliary is celebrating their 60th anniversary in 2014.  In April, the Auxiliary voted on a name change.  The Auxiliary group will now be known as "Friends of Sartori Memorial Hospital".
This organization gives over 20,000 hours a year of volunteer service to the hospital in various capacities from staffing the Gift Shop, the Information Desk, Surgical Waiting Desk and helping in Ambulatory Surgery. Volunteers help in other ways such as typing, filing, baking cookies and various special events.

The Friends of Sartori have carried on the tradition, first beginning many years ago by the nurses at Sartori, of doing a May Breakfast. Members bake coffee cakes for this event, cook and serve breakfast to over 1,000 persons in the community. For the past 25 years, the Friends have sponsored a Festival of Trees that has raised over $1.5 million for the hospital and is truly a gift to our community. 

Today, the Friends of Sartori Memorial Hospital has 237 members. The hospital continues to be very grateful for all the assistance the Friends and volunteers provide to Sartori.
