The Auxiliary at Geisinger Wyoming Valley was formed in 2009 with the merger of the Auxiliaries of Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre and Geisinger Wyoming Valley. Both auxiliaries share a strong tradition of community service and interest in providing resources to the patients served by and cared for at their respective institutions. Powered by the energy of volunteers, the reinvigorated group is dedicated to promoting good will for the Geisinger Health System and its associated programs in Northeast Pennsylvania. Membership dues are $25 per year; Master's Membership dues are $10 per year.

The Auxiliary provides services to patients at Geisinger Wyoming Valley and Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre, raises funds in harmony with community planning, and supports non-profit, health related social and medical programs consistent with the mission of Geisinger Wyoming Valley.
The current projects supported by the Auxiliary include:
