Giving Your Time to Good Samaritan
It’s not uncommon for visitors at Good Samaritan to be greeted by
a smiling volunteer. Hospital volunteers often serve as the first contact
for visitors as they enter the hospital. Good Samaritan volunteers are
seen at the Information Desk, Gifts & More, Human Resources entrance,
Surgery Waiting, Cancer Pavilion, Hospice, and the Health Pavilion registration
desk where they assist visitors with their needs. Volunteers also serve
behind the scenes by assembling patient packets, repair wheelchairs, assembling
patient charts, covering phones over employees’ lunch periods, serve
as a support system to patients and knit newborn baby items. Regardless
of their duty, big or small, the volunteers make a huge impact on Good
A significant volunteer force is the Good Samaritan Auxiliary, which is
made up of a group of volunteers who work in various areas throughout
Good Samaritan. The major role of the Auxiliary is to provide a service
to the employees and visitors, as well as provide additional financial
assistance to the hospital. Since 1964, when the Auxiliary’s first
donation was documented, the Auxiliary has donated over $2 million to
the hospital to help meet the needs of the patients and the community.
Our dedicated volunteers contribute their time to provide our patients
and families with comfort and assistance. There is no gift more generous,
more touching or more appreciated than the gift of your time. If you have
a desire to do meaningful work, and make new friends in the process, consider
