There are more than 150 active members of the Auxiliary who volunteer throughout the hospital. These men and women give approximately 40,000 hours each year and raise thousands of dollars, which they return to the hospital through major gifts. While a patient here, you will see volunteers working in many capacities. Some of these include performing clerical duties, serving as hosts and hostesses in the surgery, ICU and CCU waiting rooms, delivering flowers and mail, working the front desk, and escorting you to various departments. They also are busy behind the scenes helping out with statistics, education, and working in the Gift Shop, among others.

Community members support the mission of HMH through two volunteer programs: Hardin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary This group of dedicated men and women lend a helping hand to patients, their families, visitors and employees. Volunteers are used throughout the hospital and each receives a thorough orientation and on-the-job training. In all areas, volunteers work with experienced staff members who guide and supervise them. The Hospital Auxiliary also engages in a regular schedule of fund raising activities.

HMH Teenage Volunteer  Summer Program
Young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20 can explore the health care field though the HMH Teenage Volunteer Program. We offer year round and summer opportunities. Following orientation, each volunteer chooses to be placed in one of many areas in the hospital, including nursing, dietary, business planning, medical records and rehab, to name just a few. Volunteers are always carefully guided and supervised by staff members. Many former Teenage Volunteers have gone on to careers in health care. Some are employees of the hospital today.
