Bethesda Foundation Inc.

Changing lives, saving lives.



For more than 50 years, the Auxiliary of Bethesda Hospital has a history of service and commitment, expanding to include all Bethesda locations, Hospice of Cincinnati and the Greater Cincinnati community. Since 1962, we have contributed nearly $7 million to Bethesda. These funds help purchase medical equipment, promote social services and support the healing mission of Bethesda North Hospital.

The Auxiliary provides friend-raising opportunities through luncheons, a volunteer awards program and other social activities. Members also have access to education about programs, new treatment and technology that showcase the hospital and its commitment to the community.

In 1995 the Auxiliary of Bethesda Hospital established the Betty J. Turner Award. This award honors a volunteer, who like Betty, is outstanding in his or her dedication to the ideals that volunteers represent. Volunteer ideals include dedication, cheerfulness, loyalty, helpfulness, service, and selflessness.

This award is open to all volunteers and Auxilians, who give their time and talents to Bethesda Hospital, Inc. One volunteer/Auxilian will be selected from the nominees. The annual award will be presented at the Auxiliary Spring Luncheon on Friday, May 12, 2017.
