Becoming a Volunteer
Volunteers bring to the hospital their own individual gifts of service which are needed and appreciated by the staff and patients. Through their generosity and sacrifice, volunteers allow the staff to make greater use of their skills by freeing them from duties that do not require professional training and making extra care available to the patients.

Volunteers who are not members of the Hospital Auxiliary can apply through the People Services department and then work directly with the managers of the department where they are volunteering. For more information, contact Human Resources at 347-1335.

Schedules are set to meet your needs as well as the needs of the hospital. Days and hours are assigned as far in advance as possible for your convenience. You can volunteer as much or as little as you would like.

Hospital Auxiliary
If you enjoy serving others and being part of a team, then the St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital Auxiliary might be for you! The Auxiliary is a volunteer organization committed to promoting and advancing the welfare of St. Anthony’s through:
  • Public Relations
  • Services to the hospital
  • Fundraising
The Auxiliary was founded in 1956 by women who wanted to help the patients of St. Anthony’s. Since then, the Auxiliary has grown to a membership of over 260 men and women who serve in a variety of capacities. Membership is free of charge and open to all.

While volunteer service is not a requirement of membership, there are many volunteer opportunities available for those who want to provide service.

Information that a colleague or volunteer obtains or hears about the care and condition of patients is confidential. Any personal information about patients or their relatives is confidential as is information concerning salaries, personnel files, and other official records and reports. Such items should not be discussed with other colleagues or volunteers unless it is necessary in the performance of hospital duties. A colleague or volunteer should NEVER discuss such things outside the hospital.

Unauthorized disclosure of confidential information will result in disciplinary action.
