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.
Since 1951, the Medical Center’s volunteer program, known as The Medical Center Auxiliary, has been committed to involving dedicated volunteers in enhancing the services of the health system, and volunteers serving the health system have donated more than 1.7 million hours of service and $7 million for the enhancement of medical services.
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. The Auxiliary is continually recruiting additional volunteers because volunteers are vital to the continued success of the health system and The Medical Center Auxiliary.
