About Us

Paoli Hospital was originally located in West Chester as the Homeopathic Hospital of Chester County, founded in 1913. It moved to its current 44-acre Paoli location in 1968 as Paoli Memorial Hospital. The auxiliary was created in 1913 to provide volunteer staffing and services and to raise funds to support hospital initiatives.

In 1986 Paoli Hospital became part of the MLHS (other hospitals in MLH are Riddle, Lankenau, Bryn Mawr, Bryn Mawr Rehab). The Foundation Board was formed and the Auxiliary became a legal part of the Foundation Board. We operate under the Foundation's bylaws, which are reflected in our own auxiliary bylaws and mission statement. The Auxiliary is currently comprised of about 260 members in 6 branches (Hershey's Mill, Charlestown, Anthony Wayne, Conestoga, Great Valley and Valley Forge). We have an executive Board comprised of representatives from each of the branches and our president sits on the Hospital Foundation Board. She gives a report at each Foundation Board meeting and she sits on 2 hospital committees (I currently sit on the Development and Community Services Committees). The Hospital name evolved in 2004 to Paoli Hospital.

Who We Are

The mission of the Paoli Hospital Auxiliary is “to serve and support Paoli Hospital”. We accomplish this by raising funds through the Auxiliary's events, hospital gift shop and The Palm Tree, recruiting volunteers and by promoting Paoli Hospital within the community.

We are a team of over 260 members from a variety of backgrounds and traditions, possessing a multitude of skills and talents. Our common bond is our passion forPaoliHospital. Through the years, proceeds from our fundraisers and businesses have supported the Pavilion Campaign, Cancer Center, Breast Health Center, Emergency Department and other important hospital programs. In the last five years the Auxiliary contributed $3.5 million dollars toward new state-of-the-art surgical suites in the Pavilion and the Maternity & Nursery Expansion Campaign. Each year, the Auxiliary directs our revenue toward the hospital's most critical or timely area of need.

We have two major fundraisers: Mistletoe & Magic - a festive gala with silent auction and dancing, held annually in November and our Golf Tournament. In recent years we’ve added the Tennis Tournament, Polo Match and Tree of Lights to the event calendar.  These events bring the community together while raising important funds that help enhance the quality of care at Paoli Hospital.

Volunteering with the Paoli Hospital Auxiliary is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. The work we do helps to raise funds that directly benefit Paoli Hospital and the community. Every department of the hospital has been supported by the Auxiliary's hard work and generosity over the years.
