Rush Oak Park Hospital Auxiliary

Founded in 1907, the Auxiliary of Rush Oak Park Hospital has been a gateway for involvement in a health care institution that has served the community for more than 100 years.

Driven by a spirit of giving, Auxiliary members volunteer their time and service in clinical and non-clinical areas throughout the hospital. They provide invaluable support and raise money to enhance the hospital environment with new medical equipment — a service that helps to ensure that Rush Oak Park Hospital provides the highest quality of health care to patients.

Every year the Auxiliary holds a golf classic, its major fundraiser. Over the past several years funds raised and donations made from the golf outings have been used to purchase patient care equipment for the Intensive Care Unit, Same-Day Surgery Unit, Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Care, and Breast Center.

The Auxiliary also reaches out to the community during the holiday season with an annual tree lighting ceremony and dedication of the love light memorial tree.

  • President - Robin Rosen
  • Vice President - Karen Sanders-Ford
  • Treasurer - Sharon Schroeder
