Piedmont Fayette Hospital is looking for a few good men and women for the auxiliary volunteer program. As a result of many long-time members retiring from service, as well as new volunteer positions becoming available, the hospital has an increased need for more volunteers.
The program has many volunteer opportunities across a wide spectrum of service areas that includes the gift shop, courtesy golf cart drivers, maternity, medical surgical unit, emergency department, wound care clinic, radiology, information assistance, rehab/fitness center and more. Many service areas offer flexible schedules seven days per week, nights and weekends.
“Piedmont Fayette recently celebrated its 15th anniversary and our volunteers have played an important role in helping the hospital provide high quality health care since it opened,” said Kimberly Fair, auxiliary services coordinator at Piedmont Fayette. “Each year, more than 250 auxiliary volunteers contribute over 55,000 hours of service. Just as Piedmont Fayette has grown over the years, so has the need for more volunteers.”
Additional areas of volunteer engagement include program initiatives that support the hospital through gifted items such as wheelchairs, decor to beautify family waiting areas, cardiac monitoring equipment, gardens and holiday decorations. The auxiliary most recently gifted the latest neonatal technology, a Giraffe OmniBed, which allows physicians and nurses to care for and monitor premature infants with minimal disturbance.
The auxiliary program at Piedmont Fayette Hospital is open to men and women 18 years and older. For more information, call 770-719-7098 or visit piedmontfayette.org/Fayette/VolunteerOpportunitiesfay.aspx
