Northeast Georgia Health System volunteers and members of the Northeast Georgia Health System Auxiliary are people of all ages who give of themselves to make a difference in the lives of others.
Updates regarding COVID-19:
Northeast Georgia Health System continues to recruit volunteers to serve in designated service areas within the hospital campuses, such as The Window Shops – Gainesville and Braselton, Front Entrance Screener Stations and Information Desks, Emergency Services Patient Friend, Registration, Hospice of NGMC, Materials Management, Golf Cart Shuttle, Lifeline, Nursing Unit Patient Friend, COVID Vaccine Clinics and special projects. Fully vaccinated volunteers are utilized within designated patient care areas, and unvaccinated volunteers are utilized only within non-clinical areas.
Volunteering within the hospital campuses, long term care facilities, medical plazas, Hospice, Lifeline or with special events can be a rewarding experience for compassionate, empathetic and positive individuals.
The teen volunteer program offers high school students a great opportunity to explore careers in healthcare, and it also provides them the opportunity to learn the importance of giving back to their community. Teen volunteers assist with a variety of non-medical duties throughout the hospital and must be able to commit to volunteering a minimum of 30 hours during the summer.
College students interested in volunteering are required to submit an NGHS volunteer application with background check to Volunteer Services. If students are interested in volunteering during a specific semester, they are advised to apply by mid-term of the semester before they wish to begin.
