Historical Note

The York General Hospital Auxiliary was organized in 1956 in Rock Hill, South Carolina as a community mission project of Oakland Avenue Presbyterian Church of Rock Hill, SC. In 1958 the auxiliary joined the American Hospital Association and the South Carolina Hospital Association. The auxiliary was a volunteer group that tried to promote and advance the welfare of the York General Hospital, the American Hospital Association, the South Carolina Hospital Association, and associations throughout the state and country. In 1983, the auxiliary moved along with York General Hospital to Piedmont Medical Center. The Piedmont Medical Center Auxiliary continued the work that was done in the past while introducing more volunteers to experiences at Piedmont Medical Center.
