Through its ongoing fund raising efforts, The Volunteer Auxiliary at Memorial Medical Center – Lufkin, has purchased new equipment for the hospital’s emergency room. By raising money through gift shop, jewelry, book and scrub sales, the volunteers purchased 18 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Intravenous (I.V.) Pole Stands for the Emergency Department. The new equipment enhances the efficiency and timely delivery of I.V. medications.
