In May, 1955 the Sacred Heart Hospital Auxiliary was organized under the direction of Sister Cyril and Mary Vollmar. The purpose of the Auxiliary was to raise funds for equipment to improve patient care.
In August of 1966, the Sisters of St. Francis offered Sacred Heart Hospital to the city of Le Mars. The name of the Hospital was changed Dec. 1, 1966 to Floyd Valley Hospital, thus the Floyd Valley Hospital Auxiliary.
In 1993, the Auxiliary opened the Gift Shop in the lobby of the hospital carrying new and specialty items. Over the course of the 43 years, the Auxiliary has provided many services to the hospital, its patients and the community.
- To date, the Auxiliary has donated over $600,000 to the hospital to purchase equipment such as: bladder scanner, sterilizers, an infant warmer, an emergency crash cart, treadmills, a Nurse Call system, and turbans for Chemo patients.
- From its inception in 1978 to date, over $79,900 in scholarships has been given to 97 area students and employees pursuing health related fields through the Auxiliary Scholarship Program.
- In 2014, there were nearly 20,000 volunteer hours worked by Auxiliary members and hospital volunteers through work at the hospital, Gift Shop, and fundraising operations.
Auxiliary Healthcare Scholarship forms are due April 1, 2016.
