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 Resource entrance,
Surgery waiting, Cancer Pavilion 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 the hospital’s gift
shop. 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 $700,000 to the hospital to help meet the
needs of the community.
