Volunteer & Join the Auxiliary
Northeast Georgia Health System volunteers and Auxilians are people of all ages who give of themselves to make a difference in the lives of others.
Volunteering within the hospital, long term care facilities, medical plazas, Hospice, Lifeline, or with special events can be a rewarding experience for compassionate, empathic and positive individuals.
The teen volunteer program offers high school students a great opportunity to explore careers in healthcare, and it also provides them the opportunity to learn the importance of giving back to their community. Teen volunteers assist with a variety of non-medical duties throughout the hospital and must be able to commit to volunteering a minimum of 30 hours during the summer.
College students interested in volunteering are required to submit an NGHS volunteer application with background check to Volunteer Services. If students are interested in volunteering during a specific semester, they are advised to apply by mid-term of the semester before they wish to begin.
Medical Center Auxiliary
The Auxiliary currently has more than 600 volunteers, including adult volunteers, college student volunteers and teen volunteers, who annually devote approximately 55,000 hours of service to the health system. Volunteers contribute their time and service to assist with non-medical duties and provide comfort and support to patients, family members and visitors.
