Wood County Hospital Guild

Established in 1954, the Wood County Hospital Guild exists to promote and advance the welfare of WCH, its patients and the staff.

Guild members provide their time and talent to volunteer as needed to help make visits to WCH less stressful and to assist the staff in providing services.

The Guild also helps WCH by sponsoring activities to raise funds for needed equipment, renovations and expansion of WCH facilities and patient education, health and safety.

Over the years the Guild has given gifts to WCH in excess of one million dollars. The Guild sponsored the Women's Center with a $150,000 gift and in the summer of 2013 unveiled a new Chapel. Most recently a $100,000 pledge to the Maurer Family Cancer Care Center was completed. 

In the community the Guild supports the Lifeline emergency response system for people who live alone and a diabetes education program. Often the Guild provides wanted and needed equipment for specific departments.

For example, the emergency department has received heart monitors, EKG equipment, blood pressure monitors, a VCT and tapes, and a crash cart. The obstetrics department has benefited with the purchase of birthing beds, blood pressure monitors, a renovation of the nursery, a warming blanket and rockers. Currently, the Guild is raising funds for a new playground for the Ready Program, a kindergarten readiness program for children with autism.

The Guild is proud of its efforts and wants to continue by adding new members. Please consider a membership in the Guild that will allow you to give back to your community! New members are welcome any time of the year!

Upcoming Events 

Spring Luncheon will be May 4th and the annual Flower Sale, May 5th, 2020.
