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.
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.
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.
