Making a Difference for Patients, Visitors & Staff
Much of the focus of WAMMC is serving the people who find themselves at the Medical Center. We know that many circumstances which bring people to the hospital can be difficult and we want to make sure that the atmosphere is as welcoming and stress-reducing as possible. Many of our Twig Auxiliaries are very involved with service activities at the Medical Center and offer a great way to be a part of the good work that we do. Our Service Committees offer rewarding volunteer experiences.

Babies Alumni supports the Medical Centers’ newborn nursery, neonatal intensive care unit, mother-baby unit, and pediatrics with equipment purchases. Funds are raised from the Association’s infant photograph and birthday card enrollment program.
Special Holidays bring a little bit of home to the Medical Center. Volunteers decorate the Medical Center for different holidays to make being at the hospital a more inviting atmosphere.
Calling All Kids consists of over 100 stories read by doctors, nurses, volunteers and kids. Designed to comfort our viewers, CAK provides a welcome distraction from the daily routine and stress of a hospital stay.
Art Exhibits brings the art of local artists to the halls of the Medical Center. The artwork can be purchased at our Corner Gift Shop. This benefits the artists of our community and ensures a beautiful Medical Center welcome.
Art Committee places artwork throughout to make the Medical Center less sterile and improve the environment for patients, visitors and staff.
