Celebrating 100 Years of Humanity in Healthcare
In honor of its Centennial Anniversary, Bellevue Hospital's Auxiliary hosted a gala to celebrate one hundred years of "Keeping the Humanity in Healthcare." Their motto exemplifies years of volunteer dedication and fundraising to support many of the quality health services and programs provided to patients and the community.
Happy 100th Anniversary, Bellevue Auxiliary!
|In the early 1950s, the Auxiliary made it possible for patients to improve skills through activity therapy. ||Today, this therapeutic service continues to be an essential element for patient recovery.|
|In the 1920s, the Auxiliary established a townhouse to shelter women and children with special needs. ||Today, services have expanded extensively to include high school students volunteering to assist patients at Bellevue.|
