Hospital Volunteer Opportunities in Baxter County
Volunteers have been a special part of Baxter Regional Medical Center since
before its inception. Steeped in history, the enduring goals of our volunteers
remain the same: to serve the community and hospital through compassion,
dedication and financial support.
In addition to assisting patients, families and visitors in more than 60
areas of need, the Baxter Regional volunteers’ auxiliary raises
funds through the gift shop, thrift shops and fundraisers to purchase
equipment for the hospital.
Areas of Service
There are many volunteer opportunities at Baxter Regional. Our volunteers
assist in many fields, such as the emergency department, gift shop, thrift
shop, patient care, clerical, information desk, patient menu distribution
and special projects, just to name a few.
General meetings of the Baxter Regional Auxiliary are held six times a
year in February, March, April, September, November and December. Members
receive notification of the location, date and time of each meeting. Each
meeting consists of a special presentation, refreshments and reports from
leaders in the volunteers’ auxiliary.
The qualifications considered essential for membership in the Baxter Regional
Medical Center Auxiliary are a sincere desire to serve others, a cooperative
spirit, adaptability, friendliness, a gracious manner and complete dependability.
Every responsible member of an organization must bear his or her share
of the work, but there are also numerous opportunities to do a little
extra to enrich the lives of both the giver and the receiver. It is true
that in sharing the burdens of others, one gains strength to bear his
or her own.
