The Women's Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital LogoOne of the most active opportunities for volunteering at Chester County Hospital is through one of its many Women's Auxiliaries. The women who generously give in this capacity represent the gentle arms of a community dedicated to their community health care provider. Lasting friendships have been made among the members who represent our Auxiliaries. Energetic and organized, their work at the hospital is evident and greatly appreciated.

 


 

Support the Heart to Heart Pledge on #GIVING TUESDAY

On Tuesday, November 27, 1894, The Women’s Auxiliary hosted the first ever "Donation Day" at Chester County Hospital, which became an annual tradition. 

After Thanksgiving, we hope you will take a moment on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, to help us honor the Auxiliary’s first "Giving Tuesday" in 1894 and our deep culture of philanthropy. Your contributions to the Heart-to-Heart Pledge will support the Heart and Vascular Program at Chester County Hospital and our commitment to excellence in providing advanced cardiovascular care to our community.
