Hospital Auxiliary

Each year the Hospital Auxiliary serves a meal during the Henderson Home Show in February, a luncheon during Henderson Community Days in July and a Noodle Soup Supper in early December. Proceeds from the funds raised go toward specific hospital projects which change throughout the year.

Henderson Health Care’s Hospital Auxiliary is comprised of volunteers from the Henderson area community and welcomes volunteers and members to the board.

Junior Auxiliary

Henderson Health Care Junior Auxiliary was originated in 2004 by a group of women with the intent to give back to the community. This group currently organizes a scrapbooking event, serves homemade ice cream at the Henderson Home Show; prepares and serves a Farmer’s Market meal; organizes, publicizes, and runs the Junior Auxiliary Jaunt 5 and 10K Run for Community Days; and bakes and sells Christmas cookies at the Noodle Soup Supper. Funds raised by these events go to projects needed at the Henderson Health Care facilities.

Some of the projects taken on by the Junior Auxiliary have included painting and supplying furniture for the doctors’ offices in the clinic and hospital waiting room; the renovation of the Care Center Hair Salon; purchasing a phlebotomy chair for the lab draw room; a blanket warmer for the hospital; and the most recent addition of a Hospitality Room in the hospital which offers snacks, drinks and crushed ice for hospital visitors.

If you are interested in joining the Junior Auxiliary, contact Marcia Regier at (402) 723-4839 or There are no dues, just a willingness to give back and raise funds for a worthy cause.
