The cancellation of one of the group’s largest and most community-engaged fundraisers will have a financial and social impact on the Auxiliary, however, to protect the health and safety of its members, St. John’s Health staff, and the community, the organization decided not to hold the annual golf tournament.
“We are extremely grateful for the extraordinary outpouring of support that St. John’s Health and its healthcare workers have benefited from during this COVID-19 pandemic and we greatly appreciate everything so many of you have done already to help us through these times,” said Connie Hansen, St. John’s Auxiliary President.
The Auxiliary is still working towards their $250,000 pledge to St. John’s Health to purchase a new nuclear medicine/CT scanner – integrated technology of both nuclear medicine and CT imaging performed on one system. This scanner will be used to image the heart and look for cancer in various organs, and also provide needed additional CT capacity for the brachytherapy at St. John’s Health. In addition, it can be used for orthopedic, soft tissue, and spine scans. This pledge demonstrates the Auxiliary’s ongoing commitment to providing the best care available close to home.
