Created in 1890, the Auxiliary has been an organization dedicated to the support and improvements of Missouri Baptist Medical Center. The Auxiliary has grown into a group of about 350 dedicated men and women and promotes fellowship and camaraderie within the Missouri Baptist community.
The Auxiliary raises funds through fundraisers throughout the year and from the profits of the Ballas Boutique, our hospital's gift shop.
The Auxiliary supports nursing and junior volunteer scholarships. With the help of local church groups, the Auxiliary provides patient comfort programs such as personalized heart-shaped pillows for those having open-heart surgery, comfort pillows for patients having general surgery, hand-knitted caps for newborns, and surgical patient pouches for personal items.
The Auxiliary provides funding to all areas of the hospital to support the purchase of medical equipment and health education programs for the benefit our patients.
