Atlantic General Hospital Auxiliary - Hospital Volunteers

Atlantic General Hospital offers an abundance of ways you can volunteer 

Listed below are opportunities:

  • Ambulatory Services-Volunteers work closely with and under the direction of the nursing staff in admitting, discharging, transporting, and other patient services as needed.
  • ER - Auxiliary member who volunteer in this area work with Doctors, Nurses and Nurse Technicians. They perform the tasks that allow these professionals to help resolve the health concerns of our patients. Tasks can include cleaning and preparing stretchers, transporting patients to imaging, checking on patients' comfort and being available for any other help our professionals need. The activity level can change quickly since our patients do not plan for an emergency visit. Patients arrive needing help and we assist in them getting it. Our reward is priceless.
  • Support Services- Volunteer opportunities can include medical records, Case Management, our Wound Care Center, Imaging, Education, Administration, Public Relations, Fundraising, and Materials Management departments. Responsibilities in these areas include stocking linen, keeping our blanker warmer adequately full, transporting and escorting patients, grounds maintenance, delivering supplies, and basic clerical work.
  • Registration- This is the position for the active volunteers. Volunteers escort patients to the lab for blood work and to the imaging department for scheduled and unscheduled tests. Volunteers in this area accompany or direct family members to the Fast Track and Emergency room areas. If there are any missing wheelchairs, our volunteers use their detective skills to find them.
  • Mail Room- If you like working with machines and technology, you'll love the mail room! We process the outgoing mail for the hospital on a Pitney Bowes Machine 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, and then sort incoming mail and put it in the proper mailbox for the associates to pick up. We work in the morning, so the mail is ready for pickup by 11am. You can volunteer once a week, twice a month or whatever fits your schedule.
