St. John’s Medical Center Auxiliary has presented the St. John’s Medical Center Board of Trustees with a check to complete the Auxiliary’s pledge of $150,000 to be used in the purchase of state-of-the art patient medication pumps. Altogether, 40 new medication pumps are being purchased for the hospital. A large portion of the money for the purchase was derived from money raised at the annual Spring Fling gala last May and the Charitable Golf Tournament in the fall. This year’s Auxiliary goal is to raise money toward a new $150,000 pledge which this time will help purchase nee integrated surgical suite equipment. To date, the Auxiliary has raised more than $2-million for the hospital.
