Volunteering as an Auxiliary Member

Auxiliary volunteers play a huge role in ensuring positive patient and family satisfaction.


The donation of time to those in need can go a long way in helping to provide safe quality care to patients and families within our community. Adults can find personal fulfillment in helping others. Auxiliary Members provide service in non-patient care areas.
