About our auxiliary

Our auxiliary fulfills its mission by supporting Fairview Lakes Medical Center's programs and services and giving scholarships for students entering health care careers. The auxiliary informs members about important local and national health care issues. With more than 400 members, the Fairview Lakes Medical Center Auxiliary is one of the largest health care auxiliaries in Minnesota. Auxiliary members can choose to be active or supporting.

Active auxiliary members have many chances to serve Fairview Lakes Medical Center through fund-raising and "friend-raising" events. Funds raised support patient care, equipment needs and health care scholarships for deserving local students and staff. Friend-raising activities, such as the annual Fall Brunch, bring us together for fun and friendship and welcome new members to our ranks.

Mission Statement: The mission of the Fairview Lakes Auxiliary is to provide, support, and enhance services and communication to patients, community and staff while fostering a community atmosphere that embraces the values of service, dignity, compassion and integrity
