Volunteer Auxiliary

Community volunteers contribute their time through the Volunteer Auxiliary. Our volunteers are an important part of our staff.

Hundreds of dedicated men and women volunteer time and energy to help us meet the needs of patients. The Auxiliary operates a gift shop in the lobby of the Barnet J. Segal Outpatient Services Center. Volunteers help in numerous ways, including assisting visitors around the medical center campus, assembling baby gift bags for new mothers, offering companionship to pediatric and elderly patients and providing clerical and translation services.

Volunteers are assigned according to their interests and skills. Use your special skills and talents in a variety of ways...and in many different areas, such as:

Emergency Room
