St. John's Auxiliary


The purpose of St. John’s Auxiliary is to promote and advance the welfare of St. John’s Health.  This is accomplished by educating  members so they may serve as ambassadors for the St. John’s Health in the community, and through fundraising activities and service to the hospital and its patients. 


Our Current Campaign

Nuclear medicine/CT scanner

Our current campaign supports the purchase of a new nuclear medicine/CT scanner – integrated technology of both nuclear medicine and CT imaging performed on one system.  St. John’s Auxiliary pledges to raise $250,000 toward the purchase of this innovative device, that benefits a wide variety of patients. 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 latest pledge demonstrates the Auxiliary’s ongoing commitment to providing the best care available close to home
