WILSON MEDICAL CENTER AUXILIARY


The Wilson Medical Center Auxiliary, established in 1959, is a dynamic, service organization with a rich tradition of successful projects that support Wilson Medical Center & Clinics and the community. They are identifiable by their teal jackets and polo shirts and provide both financial and moral support to the hospital. Their commitment is to fundraising, community education about the programs and services of Wilson Medical Center, and volunteering in support of those services.
We wear the hospital auxiliary insignia of the American Hospital Association on our uniform. Did you ever wonder what it symbolizes?

Through the center of the emblem is the double barred Cross of Lorraine, which is the emblem of relief of the unfortunate. (In red, it is also the official sign of the American Tuberculosis Association.)

Above this, the American eagle symbolizes the United States; on the sides of it, the Maple Leaves represent Canada.

In the upper left corner is a Caduceus (the staff of Mercury) along with the Serpent Aesculatius (the symbol of healing for thousands of years), and emblem of the medical profession.

In the upper right is the Maltese Cross - emblem of St. John of Jerusalem since the year 1092, used by the St. John Ambulance Service for several hundred years.

In the lower left corner is the Greek of Geneva Cross - international emblem of the sick and wounded.
In the lower right is the Urn Lamp - universal symbol of knowledge, and the official emblem of the Florence Nightingale Nurses.
