Fayette Regional Health System has over 100 dedicated volunteers providing for both hospital and patient needs. These volunteers donate their time each week working in various capacities throughout our facilities.
The Auxiliary has many roles in our hospital. They greet and direct visitors at the information desks, manage and operate our Gift Shop, and help in various other capacities as needed.
Each year, the auxiliary volunteers participate in many programs including Christmas stockings for December babies, teddy bears for oncology patients, small plush animals for children being treated in ER, coughing pillows for surgery patients and baby shirts for newborns. They also have helped purchase needed equipment and provide three scholarships annually to CHS seniors entering the medical field.
Although this volunteer group is primarily “behind the scenes” at FRHS, they are equally important in helping our team function efficiently. The responsibilities of these volunteers are more administrative in nature and include: stuffing envelopes, delivering mail and flowers, monitoring waiting areas, shredding, etc. These volunteers are always eager to help with new projects and a play a vital role our success.
These volunteers provide physical and emotional care and support to hospice patients and their families. They also provide clerical and other support to the Hospital Team. For additional information on Hospice volunteering, call Sandy Webb at extension 7717.
