Newman Regional Health Auxiliary and Volunteer Program


Newman Regional Health is grateful for the energetic volunteers in our Auxiliary. Founded in 1955, this group of men and women provide a variety of valuable services. Working beside our highly skilled hospital staff, these devoted volunteers donate their time and energy to make our patients’ stay as pleasant as possible. Their smiling faces greet visitors, all the while making everyone feel welcome.

Due to the COVID-19 responce plan the Auxilliary volunteers are on hiatus at this time. We look forward to when their return will help to provide exceptional care to our community.

Auxiliary members provide many of the optional services for our patients’ convenience and comfort.

  • Staff our Gift Shoppe
  • Staff our Snack bar, baking goodies and making our famous Ham Salad!
  • Greet patients and visitors at our reception and information desks
  • Deliver mail and information to our staff

No matter your skillset, there is a place for you as a Newman Regional Health Auxiliary member.
