The Overlook Auxiliary is a volunteer organization cultivating a compassionate and comforting environment throughout the entire Medical Center community with active volunteering and imaginative fundraising.
Overlook Medical Center is a part of Atlantic Health System, one of New Jersey’s largest nonprofit health care systems. As a nonprofit organization, Overlook Medical Center strives to deliver high quality, safe, and affordable health care with respect and compassion.
The Overlook Auxiliary, an independent organization made up of men and women of all ages, supports the medical center by providing much needed hands-on and imaginative fundraising.
Our efforts provide many of the extras that make Overlook Medical Center special in our area. The volunteer commitment of each Auxiliary volunteer may be achieved either by working as an individual or as a member of a “Twig”.
The Auxiliary’s focus is on fundraising and volunteering. Our Gift Shop & Bloom located in the Medical Center’s Main Lobby, is staffed by our volunteers and is popular with patients, staff and the local community. The Auxiliary also runs a biennial Kitchen Tour which features several of the area’s fabulous, private kitchens. The “Art at Overlook” program provides local New Jersey artists an opportunity to exhibit in the public areas of the medical center. Our very popular Annual Spring Luncheon features a variety of interesting guest speakers. Additionally there are themed parties and gatherings, all creating opportunities for Auxiliary members to come together socially.
The Auxiliary supports many important medical center related programs including Child Life, Healthstart Clinic, Hospice/Homecare, Lobby Music Program, Oncology Teas, Palliative Care, Pastoral Care, and Social Services. We also fund several nursing scholarships for deserving candidates on an annual basis. The Auxiliary has contributed funding for several large building projects including the Caregiver’s Center, the Emergency Department and the Pediatric Playroom.
