Our Nursing Champions

We just wanted to brag a little about our hospital auxiliary. The pink ladies (and gentlemen) are the fundraising arm of Humboldt General Hospital, but did you know they do so much more than purchase equipment? Over the last 20 years, the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary has provided 53 people with financial grants to complete their education in nursing. At least 31 of these women have returned to Winnemucca in the nursing field. Our community is truly blessed, with a 60 percent return rate, and for the first time, three of them are men! Currently, the Auxiliary has seven active scholarship recipients splitting $24,000 between them. We are so very grateful. Thank you, pink ladies and gentlemen, for all you do.
