The Valley Hospital Auxiliary was a major catalyst in the founding of the hospital, raising funds and establishing community support years before the hospital opened. Today's Auxiliary, which consists of members from many local communities, remains an integral part of hospital life.

Our Mission

The mission of The Valley Hospital Auxiliary is to:

  • Serve as community liaison for the hospital
  • Assist the hospital through a variety of traditional and non-traditional volunteer services
  • Raise funds for vital hospital programs

Our Pledge

Since its inception, the Auxiliary has helped serve local communities by raising funds for specific healthcare programs and services. To date, the Auxiliary has donated more than $18 million to Valley.

The Auxiliary’s current pledge is to raise $3 million to establish the Pediatric Section of the Emergency Department at The Valley Hospital in Paramus, and $100,000 for Valley Home Care’s endowment for Butterflies, a pediatric in-home palliative and hospice care program for seriously ill children. The Auxiliary may provide additional financial support to other Valley Hospital Auxiliary and Valley Health System initiatives.

The Valley Hospital Auxiliary donated $225,000 to the Valley Hospital Foundation at their Annual Luncheon on June 15, 2023. This brings total donations for fiscal year 2022-2023 to $475,000.  Since the pledge’s inception in 2019, the Auxiliary has raised $1,922,660 leaving a balance of $1,177,339 to be fulfilled by 2025.
