Group of VolunteersThe Nash UNC Health Care Volunteer Auxiliary’s mission is to help assure that patients have a positive and nurturing experience by giving of themselves with compassion while also contributing to the well-being of staff and physicians.

As volunteers, we play a vital role in our organization. Whether delivering flowers to patients, performing clerical duties, working in the gift shop, escorting patients or just giving a smile to someone, volunteers are a critical component of health care.

Many times, the only thing it takes to make a positive impact on someone is a kind word or a smile. We have several service area opportunities at various locations throughout the hospital. Service area opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  • receptionist duties
  • classroom set-up
  • cleaning equipment
  • clerical duties
  • giving tours
  • delivering mail and flowers to patients
  • greeting families and giving directions
  • serving customers through the Volunteer Auxiliary’s Gift Shop
  • distributing donated magazines to waiting areas of the hospital
  • staff / family liaison
  • patient discharge
  • filing and copying

Patient & Family Seal of ApprovalPatient & Family Care Advisory Council

This council consists of citizens from our community who are genuinely concerned about improving both the patient and family experience at Nash UNC Health Care. Members meet once a month to discuss all types of issues, provide an outsider's point of view, and to offer recommendations for improvement. Their insight has proven to be extremely beneficial to the hospital. Most of the members have either been a patient or have experienced this hospital through a loved one. If you feel you would like to be a part of this committee, call 962-6999.
