Serving Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center with pride and commitment.
The A. Barton Hepburn Hospital Auxiliary was started many years ago by the Ogdensburg City Guild. The mission of the Auxiliary was to raise money for equipment and monetary contributions to the A. Barton Hepburn Hospital. Over the years these devoted ladies have worked tirelessly on many fundraising events such as the annual Hollyberry sale, bookfairs, uniform and jewelery sales and many others. They usually host at least one fundraiser a month. They also manage the Medical Center's Gift Shop, which is located off the Main Lobby of the first floor.In the 1980's the Auxiliary became a part of A. Barton Hepburn Hospital. When the hospital changed its name to Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center the Auxiliary followed by changing their name to mirror the Medical Center.The original mission has always been the same--raise money to benefit Claxton-Hepburn.
