WGH Auxiliary raises money from Dance the Night Away event

Warren General Hospital Auxiliary purchased two new pieces of equipment for Rehab Works this past year. A Hand Held Dynamometer is used to accurately assess strength and is important for return to play decisions after an athletic injury. A Leg Press is a device used to strengthen the lower extremities.   Pictured using the Dynamometer is therapist Josh Lewis and patient Levi Hendrickson.  Patient Dorothy Culbertson is shown using the Leg Press.  Funds raised by the WGH Auxiliary make it possible to purchase much needed medical equipment.

The Warren General Hospital Auxiliary GALA, “Dance the Night Away at the Club”, is now part of the history of the Auxiliary, but our appreciation to all of our generous and kind supporters is very much at the top of our minds. Attendees at this year’s GALA enjoyed a delicious dinner prepared by the Conewango Club and spent the evening sharing music, dancing and laughter with friends and co-workers. The benevolence of the businesses and individuals listed below is what makes this fund raiser one of our biggest of the year. Funds raised enable the Auxiliary to support our local hospital in ways both large and small. This past year alone the Auxiliary responded to the needs of various departments within the hospital and purchased items ranging from equipment for Rehabworks, furniture and artwork for the Behavioral Unit of WGH, Scholarship Awards and holiday lighting for the hospital for the whole community to enjoy. These are just a few ways the Auxiliary is able to support the hospital. We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the following for their contributions to the Annual GALA:
