Approximately 25 volunteers make up Cox Barton County Hospital's Auxiliary and they play an important role in the hospital’s
success. The Auxiliary’s mission is to assist patients, families,
visitors and staff in an empathetic and supportive manner.
The Auxiliary began shortly after the hospital was built in 1949 and through the years has raised money and donated to different hospital projects. In recent years, donations helped purchase the player grand piano enjoyed by so many in our front lobby, new recliners for patient rooms and a blanket warmer.
Whether it is an hour each month or every day, Auxiliary volunteers cheerfully donate their skills and talents to support our hospital. Members of the Auxiliary act as greeters, cookie bakers, van or golf cart drivers and brighten lives by delivering mail and flowers to patient rooms. Some give their time to staff the gift shop or to give hand massages to patients and they also generously gives of their time to stitch lap quilts and cloth toys for our patients.
