Annual Summer Golf Event The 2nd Sunday of August each year, the Auxiliary will hosts its Annual Golf Classic at the Benson Golf Course.  Besides an afternoon of golf, there is more fun in the evening.  We have an awards dinner for everyone after the fun in the sun. Plus, the Auxiliary works all year collecting dozens of prizes to give away at the evening event.  Sign up early, this event is usually sold out early.  To sign up call the Hospital at 320-843-4232.

“Learn for Life” Program This event is our gift to you.  The most recent events hosted were Make and Take craft nights that also included a discussion and/or presentation on a current health care topic with a Swift County – Benson Health Services healthcare professional. This evening event is usually held in the fall.  Watch this website or the SCBHS calendar in the paper for information.  Past topics discussed were: women’s health, osteoporosis, colon cancer, diabetes, healthy eating, and cholesterol.
