VolunteeringTaylor Regional Hospital has a very active Auxiliary Volunteer organization which has a long history of service to the hospital and community. There are many areas of involvement that are available to Auxiliary members:
Gift ShopThe TRH Gift Shop is solely staffed by Auxiliary Volunteers and is open at various times throughout the week. The Gift Shop is the primary source of funds for the Auxiliary and also provides a means of "giving back" to the hospital by way of a yearly donation for equipment needed throughout the facility.
Information Desk & GreeterMembers who work the Information Desk and Greeter positions serve as the first contact for many individuals who enter the hospital. Work consists of supplying room information as well as escorting and helping those who may be lost.
Clinical Service AreasAuxiliary members are now able to work in certain clinical and other areas such as Radiology, Surgical Services, Cancer Center, Mammography, Cafeteria and Emergency Services. Each position involves, but is not limited to, interaction with patients and families, clerical duties, and general errands. The clinical areas provide the most "hands on" experience with patients and family members. Our Auxiliary members are a critical link in making our patients feel welcome and more relaxed in stressful situations. Work in these areas vary from keeping families informed and making patients more comfortable in surgery or the ER, to filing or answering the telephone.
Community OutreachThe Auxiliary Volunteers are active in the local community and are involved in many organizations. Each year at Christmas, the Auxiliary collects non-perishable canned goods and donates to the local food pantry.
