Auxiliary

Call for more information: 770-219-1830

Since 1951, the Medical Center’s volunteer program, known as the Northeast Georgia Health System Auxiliary, has been committed to involving dedicated volunteers in enhancing the services of the health system, and volunteers serving the health system have donated nearly 2.1 million hours of service and $8.96 million for the enhancement of medical services.

Our Reach

The Auxiliary currently has more than 700 volunteers, including adult volunteers, college student volunteers and teen volunteers, who annually devote approximately 73,000 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.  The Auxiliary is continually recruiting additional volunteers because volunteers are vital to the continued success of the health system.

Gift Shops

The NGHS Auxiliary operates three gift shops within the health system.  Profits from the gift shops are donated by the Auxiliary to enhance services of NGHS.  The ongoing success of the shops is a result of dedicated volunteer salespeople and a team of volunteer buyers.  Please visit The Window Shop North or The Window Shop South at the Gainesville Campus or The Window Shop at the Braselton Campus. The Window Shops carry an assortment of gifts, flowers, plants, books, cards and other personal gift items for patients.  The Window Shop South at the Gainesville Campus currently features a nice selection of specialty items for women, infants and children. Gift Shop Volunteers gladly deliver gift packages, flowers or plants to patients.

Hi there! I can help quickly answer common questions about COVID-19. Please pick one of the options below.

Sent by: Northeast Georgia Health System
  • I don’t feel well. What do I do?
  • Can I visit a patient?
  • How many COVID-19 cases do you have?
  • How can I prevent COVID-19?
  • How can I help NGHS?

If you have a fever and cough or difficulty breathing, these steps will help you find the care you need and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our region:

  • Call before you come

    Please call your doctor's office or an urgent care clinic for advice about where you should go for treatment.

  • Call 9-1-1 for emergencies

    Calling 9-1-1 is always the fastest and most efficient way to get proper treatment for medical emergencies.

  • Consider staying home and taking advantage of an E-Visit

    When symptoms strike, connect with a provider through an E-Visit instead of traveling to the urgent care or the doctor’s office.

    Learn more about E-Visits from these area practices:

The best way to avoid infection is to avoid exposure. Here are simple steps you can take to lower your risk of catching or spreading illness:

  • Wear a mask – a cloth face cover can protect other people in case you are infected. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Avoid close contact – maintain 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household. If someone in your household is sick, maintain 6 feet of distance from them as well.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching tissues.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces to help prevent the spread of germs
  • Monitor your health daily –  Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
