Owatonna Hospital Auxiliary

Since 1957, Owatonna Hospital Auxiliary volunteers have been giving back to the Owatonna community. Today, these volunteers provide support to hospital departments, as well as the Owatonna Hospital Auxiliary Coffee & Gift Shop.

In addition to volunteering, the Auxiliary has donated nearly $430,000 to Owatonna Hospital for:

  • unbudgeted Owatonna Hospital items
  • amenities to provide patient care and comfort
  • scholarships for area students pursuing medical careers.

Auxiliary scholarships

The Owatonna Hospital Auxiliary and Donald Sanford Fund sponsor a number of scholarships for individuals attending programs in nursing and health related careers. Recipients of these scholarships are selected on the basis of need and merit.
