The former Auxiliary of Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center has reorganized and will now be known as the Laurel Highlands Health & Wellness Auxiliary. The change was necessitated by the 2014 acquisition of Conemaugh Health System by for-profit entity Duke LifePoint Healthcare.
Laurel Highlands Health & Wellness Auxiliary will continue efforts to serve the health and wellness needs of the region. "With the challenges facing healthcare and our aging population, the needs in our region are prevalent," says Jessica Lund, Auxiliary President, pictured above. "The Auxiliary members are excited to resume volunteer work to support a healthy community."
Popular fundraising activities of the Auxiliary will continue including a Golf Classic on September 18 and Gala on November 21. Both events will be held at Sunnehanna Country Club and will benefit the newly formed 1889 Foundation, formerly the Conemaugh Health Foundation.
Board members of the Auxiliary include Jessica Lund, President; Kathy Gorzelsky, Vice President; Renee Felix, Treasurer; Rosalind Gordon, Assistant Treasurer; and members at large Christine Patrick, Wanda Keller, and Marie Gelormino.
