Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital

Volunteering with the Auxiliary provides our intergenerational membership opportunities to connect with each other during fun social events and also provides a meaningful way to give back to the community through educational, fundraising and community programs. Join or volunteer with the Auxiliary today.


From handcrafting teddy bears that comfort our youngest patients and hanging art to create a warm and caring environment, to funding state-of-the-art facilities and advanced medical equipment, the Auxiliary strives to improve the patient experience in all areas.

The Auxiliary holds special events for members and their guests in order to spread the word about Emerson Hospital’s wide range of high-quality healthcare services. These events include presentations at coffees, luncheons and evening gatherings.


The Auxiliary offers programs to our community that feature Emerson Hospital’s well-respected medical professionals who share their expertise on current health and wellness topics.

Check and be involved in Auxiliary sponsored events.


Through the Auxiliary’s fundraising efforts, we’ve enabled the hospital to purchase technology for real-time communication among departments, cardiac rehabilitation equipment and programs, state-of-the-art 3D mammography, nursing education, and more.

Notably, recent Auxiliary contributions have supported:
The renovation of Emerson’s level II special care nursery. This project created a more efficient and appropriate environment for those infants who are at risk of serious complications related to immaturity or illness.
The expansion of the Naka Infusion Center, which provides advanced care for patients undergoing infusion chemotherapy, patients with blood disorders, individuals requiring intravenous antibiotics, or those taking pain management medication.
A convenient MedSafe drop-off location in the John Cuming Building allowing the community to safely dispose of any unwanted prescriptions.
Domestic violence kits for victims who arrive in the emergency department without any personal effects.
Colorful superhero johnnies for children to wear during their hospital stay, hopefully making their visit a little bit more comfortable.

One of our Membership Chairs will contact you to discuss your interests. If you have any questions, please call us at 978-287-3019 or email at

I visited Emerson Hospital ER on a Thursday afternoon. The day prior, I had undergone a fertility diagnostic test called a “Sonohysterogram” with saline at a fertility center as part of my fertility assessment. I had severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen in the hours after the test and then the next day, my stomach was so sore and I was in so much pain I could barely walk or touch my lower abdomen. Since I live in Maynard, I immediately went to Emerson as I knew this much discomfort and pain was not normal following this test. I was IMMEDIATELY admitted, triaged, and taken into an examination room. I was then IMMEDIATELY seen by a nurse, physicians assistant and ER doctor. They took the time to listen to me, ask me important questions and then quickly order the testing and got me started on IV fluids and pain medication - bloodwork, urine culture, etc. From there, they ordered the ultrasound and other necessary tests. The nurse checked on me all the time and was so kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. The doctor was patient, kind, and had excellent bedside manner. The nurse that triaged me also made me feel comfortable and cared for right from the start - even though I was in so much pain. Also, there was a very cute painting in my room of a lake and birds and trees and as silly as it sounds, that helped me meditate and breathe and feel at ease at a time where I was so scared and nervous to find out the cause of my lower abdominal pain. I highly recommend this hospital and it’s staff. You’ll be well cared for, you won’t be misdiagnosed, and they’ll take the time to truly ensure you are taken care of, not sitting around in pain, and feel like more than a number. I’m thankful this hospital is so close to my home.

Last week while on vacation, I became extremely ill. Not being familiar with the city and reluctant to check myself into the emergency room, I gave Dr. a call. He arrived at my hotel within 40 minutes and delivered both fantastic bedside manner and medical care. As a native New Yorker, I was admittedly skeptical. But Dr.'s experience and board certifications put me at ease. I was back on my feet the next day!

Last night, while playing hockey I was hit in the mouth with a stick. My lip split open and I chipped teeth. Upon arriving at Emerson Hospital's ER, I was quickly admitted, escorted by a nurse to a room where she took my vitals. Withing 10 mins. Dr. Thomas Lareau checked me out, cleaned my lip and inserted several stitches. His bedside manner was friendly, informative and his sewing skills were superb! He reviewed with me the plan for suture removal with my primary care physician and sent me on my way. All withing 40 mins! Absolutely great service without the long waiting times of other area hospitals. If you need to visit an ER, I highly recommend Emerson Hospital!!

Spent a few days in the maternity ward following the delivery of our fourth. On a positive note, the nurses and doctors were for the most part very helpful and friendly for our extended stay. I do have a critical recommendation, however, the chairs in the postpartum section are terrible. For breastfeeding mothers, this is not a good way to start them off. For the partners, like myself, who sat in these chairs for hours holding the wee baby - ouch.
