Auxiliary Donations to Mid Coast Hospital

Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary donations to Mid Coast Hospital have truly been outstanding, thanks to the support of residents of our communities! Our success at fundraising depends on many factors, depending on the event…for example, every book is donated to the spring used book sale with the Auxiliary earning $4,000-$5,000 each year.  Every item at the “Grand and Glorious” Yard Sale is donated, earning over $50,000 each year. These donations add up to significant amounts which help fund large capital projects.  When the current pledge of $120,000 for the updated Maternity infant security system is paid, the Auxiliary donations for the new hospital will be at $1,070,000.

Healing Garden

Before the new hospital was built, the Bath and Brunswick Auxiliaries had cooperated for many years, and presented $400,000, the largest gift, to the capital campaign. One project included in that gift is the healing garden outside the Café patio, enjoyed every day by patients, families, volunteers, employees, visitors and the public.

Parking Lot

Business was very good at the new hospital and parking was a problem from the day it opened. Although not a “sexy” gift, the need for a new lot was great and the Auxiliary stepped to the plate. The gift of $100,000 for the parking lot on the hill helped with construction and blasting of ledge.

CT Scanner

When a new CT scanner was needed, the Auxiliary again rose to the occasion and earned its pledge of  $150,000 to help with the costs associated with such a huge piece of vital equipment.

Emergency Department Beds & Waiting Area

The need became great for a new Emergency Department, and again the Auxiliary was invited to raise funds for this addition to the hospital, which opened in 2009. Another $150,000 was pledged for the new ED waiting area, providing a bright, sunny and inviting location for patients waiting their turn in the ED.

Downtown Walk-In Clinic

The hospital determined that a way to lessen the load of patients at the Emergency Department at a lower cost was to open a walk-in clinic and primary care practice at Brunswick’s Downtown Station. Doors opened in 2011 with the Auxiliary pledging $150,000 to help with furnishings and equipment for this new space, now heavily used by the community.

Maternity Unit Infant Security System

The current Auxiliary pledge of the $120,000 funds a technological need within the hospital---the upgrade of the Maternity Unit infant security system.
