Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Auxiliary volunteers recently enjoyed a special 50th anniversary celebration. The Auxiliary was formed in 1962, before the hospital opened.


More than 60 Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Auxiliary volunteers recently attended a celebratory commemorative breakfast at the hospital.

A special video, which aired during the event, chronicled the Auxiliary’s 50 years of service to the hospital and Santa Clarita Valley community.

Roger Seaver, CEO and president of the hospital, lauded the volunteers for their service.

“You are an asset we treasure here every day,” Seaver said.

Santa Clarita Mayor Frank Ferry presented a certificate of appreciation to the Auxiliary for 50 years of service to the nearly 275,000 residents of the SCV.

“For patients in recovery, you are the morale boosters,” Ferry said. “Thank you to all of you trusted and loyal volunteers. We want you to triple those 50 years.”

Since 1962, before Henry Mayo opened officially in 1975, through today, the Auxiliary has dedicated thousands of hours of service to the hospital.

The SCV Women’s Auxiliary, or the “Pink Ladies” as they were known in the 1960s and 1970s because of the color of their uniforms, raised funds, helped with patient care ran the gift shop and organized tours for the hospital.

Known today as the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, this group of more than 100 men and women continue to volunteer their services and raise funds for patient care and healthcare technology at the hospital.

The Auxiliary manages the gift shop and hosts several fundraising events. Auxiliary volunteers also support special Parent Preview and Tyke Hike tours at the hospital.

Fundraisers include a spiral-bound Auxiliary Cookbook, which contains 150 recipes from hospital employees and volunteers, for $10 and the 2013 Henry Mayo calendar, $12. Available in the hospital’s gift shop. Proceeds benefit patient care services. Info: 661-253-8051.
