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 Samaritan.

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 more than $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.
