Our History

The Rome Twigs came into being in 1907 when Millicent Hazelton introduced the idea of a “sewing circle” to make items to raise money for the hospital. They also sewed hospital supplies. In its first year, the Twigs were able to give the hospital $77.45 from its first sale held in Mrs. Hazelton’s home.

The parent stem of the Rome Twigs was the Oak Twig. Presently, there are 11 other Twig branches that join together in their philanthropic mission.

Today, there isn’t a floor in the hospital that has not benefited from the generosity of the Rome Twigs. The Twigs’ history of giving totals more than $3.3 million in modern equipment, renovations and community programs.

From its early beginnings in 1907, the Rome Twigs organization has devoted countless hours and tireless energy in unwavering support of the hospital. The Twigs’ dedication and commitment has significantly enhanced the hospital’s ability to provide quality health care services to Rome and the surrounding area.

We appreciate the volunteers who continue this long tradition of dedicated service in support of the hospital and its mission. We are grateful for their gifts of time and energy. Their continued efforts will help us ensure that this community has a quality, modern facility, capable of meeting the healthcare needs of our patients.
