Hedrick Medical Center Volunteer

Hedrick Medical Center

We want you!

Although we employ over 300 staff, we need volunteers to provide the best care possible. As part of the Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary, you will touch lives on a daily basis, ensuring that Hedrick continues to be the best place to get care.

Gift Box

The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary operates The Gift Box in the lobby of the hospital as a source of income for its annual scholarships and projects. Gifts for newborns to adults, as well as fresh flowers, are available in all price ranges.

What is the Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary?

The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary has been making a difference in the lives of patients since 1954.

Since the beginning, this dedicated group of volunteers have been partners with employees and staff of Hedrick Medical Center. Some are involved because of a personal experience with Hedrick and want to give back. Others simply want to give back to the community.

Our volunteers have a wide range of responsibilities throughout Hedrick that complement their interests and skills. Members represent many age groups and parts of the community – parents, grandparents, business people, long-time volunteers, and youth. We would not be the hospital we are today without the efforts of our wonderful volunteers!  

How can I join our volunteer team?

The requirements are few and the rewards are many. All you need is the drive to help others, a friendly and flexible personality, and a reliable, dependable nature. As part of the auxiliary, you’ll experience: a friendly volunteer environment, jobs that suit your interests and skills, the satisfaction of helping others, and a free meal in the Garden Café during your shift.

The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 for the purpose of encouraging qualified individuals to pursue or enrich a career in the health care field. Scholarships are awarded annually. To date, over $79,000 scholarships have been awarded to area students.
