Grounded in a philanthropic and humanitarian effort to assist Bellevue's indigent and needy patients, the Auxiliary to Bellevue Hospital continues its modern-day mission to offer direct enhancement to all patients' well-being, care and convalescence, through financial and programmatic support.
The Auxiliary has taken to heart, and continues to honor, its original mission: to discover a need and "supply the appropriate relief to those Bellevue patients who, by reason of poverty, continued weakness, or lack of home or family, stand in active need of a friend."
For over one hundred years the Auxiliary to Bellevue Hospital Center, Inc. has provided funding and services to the diverse population of New York City. From inpatient treatments, to home-care, to outpatient support, the Auxiliary has been there for everyone. The contributions of dedicated volunteers have been part of the tradition of the Auxiliary and its' commitment to Bellevue Hospital and to the community.
The motto for the Auxiliary is "Keeping the Humanity in Healthcare"
and that is truly the motivation for all of the programs and patient care services that we support.
