Orange Park Medical Center’s Auxilians come from all walks of life. Some are former school teachers, nurses, realtors, business executives and accountants. They love giving of themselves to support their community.
The hospital’s Auxiliary was founded in 1974. These charity-minded men and women have donated countless hours of service to the hospital.
