“We could not be prouder of the board and members of the McKenzie Health System Auxiliary,” said Nina Barnett, Public Relations Coordinator at McKenzie Health System. “Year after year, these dedicated community members volunteer their time and talent to serve our hospital, our staff and our community. We are proud to welcome new members and to welcome back several long-serving members of this strong team.”
Founded in 1967, the McKenzie Health System Auxiliary offers a wealth of volunteer opportunities. The members visit with patients and assist with simple daily tasks; they serve in the gift shop and coordinate fundraising to purchase new equipment for the hospital.

In addition to their work at McKenzie Health System, the Auxiliary members are active in the community and participate in a variety of service and charitable organizations throughout Sanilac County.
