The objective of this ecumenical group is to provide services to Medical Center patients, stimulate interest in the welfare of the Medical Center, promote a cooperative relationship between local citizens and the Medical Center and to support Saint Francis financially through fundraising events. With nearly 450

Auxiliary members and volunteers, the Auxiliary coordinates the following initiatives at Saint Francis.

Adult Volunteers

Volunteering offers adults the opportunity to serve their community, make new friends and enrich their lives. To volunteer, please print and complete our application form, and return it to the Foundation office. For more information, call 573-331-5166.

Around The Clock Medical Alarms

If you’re unable to reach a phone, it could be hours or days before needed attention is received. With a medical alert system, police and fire personnel, as well as your family and friends, are just the push of a button away.

Our systems allow you to remain independent in the comfort of your home while having the peace of mind knowing that help will be there when you need it the most.
