McKenzie Auxiliary Donates Thousands For New Equipment

Sandusky, MI – McKenzie Health System (MHS) Auxiliary members recently donated $12,000 to McKenzie Health System. The funds were used to purchase an Ultracision Harmonic Scalpel, as well as other equipment, that was needed. “The Auxiliary is a very important extension of MHS that represents the local community and invests in the local community through donations like this,” said Steve Barnett, President and CEO of MHS. “We are truly appreciative of the time and energy this group of volunteers puts into helping us attain our goal of exceptional healthcare.”
On June 11, the 10th Annual McKenzie Health System Auxiliary Golf Scramble was held at Woodland Hills. A record thirty-two teams played the fundraiser tournament.
“Our volunteers, sponsors, community members and MHS employees helped make this donation possible,” said Patti O’Connor, Auxiliary President.
Founded in 1967, the MHS Auxiliary now is comprised of individuals that volunteer thousands of hours. Members donate their time and talents for the benefit of the hospital, working in the gift shop, providing support at community events and coordinating fundraising opportunities.
