St. John's Health

The St. John's Health Auxiliary has closed its latest fundraiser for the hospital.

At a hospital board meeting in late May, Auxiliary representatives presented the trustees with a giant check (think Publisher's Clearinghouse), signifying the end of its push to raise $250,000 to help pay for a nuclear medicine CT scanner. Nuclear medicine is a type of radiology that can detect certain types of cancers early in their progression.

The Auxiliary is an organization that philanthropically supports the hospital, though it is separate from the St. John's Health Foundation. It fundraises through its website and a pair of events, the Spring Fling and a golf tournament.

Representatives said at the May hospital board meeting that they would announce the details of the next campaign shortly.
