Fairchild Medical Center is extremely fortunate to have many talented community members who volunteer their services in a variety of ways.
Join our Team:
The Fairchild Medical Center (FMC) Auxiliary was organized over thirty-five (35) years ago for the purpose of promoting and advancing the welfare of FMC by assisting patients and hospital personnel, developing good public relations and providing equipment for FMC through its fundraising activities.
As operating margins continue to shrink, health care institutions increasingly turn to organizations (guilds, auxiliaries and foundations) to provide the resources necessary for continued growth and quality patient care in an ever changing health care environment.
Since its inception, the FMC Auxiliary has provided over 450,000 hours of volunteer services and has provided funds to Fairchild Medical Center for the purchase of much needed equipment. In addition, each year the Auxiliary offers scholarships to high school graduates planning a career in healthcare fields.
FMC Auxiliary volunteers provide services in patient care areas (Medical/Surgery, OB, Outpatient and Emergency Department). They also staff the Information Desk/Patient Check-In which is one of the most important services provided as it presents the first impression of the hospital. In addition, the Auxiliary operates a very successful gift shop which is noted throughout the community for its unique merchandise. The Auxiliary also provides a patient transport van that takes patients to and from their appointments at the FMC Clinic or main hospital. The Transportation System Program enables men as well as women to volunteer their services as van drivers. Volunteers range in age from nineteen (19) to ninety (90) and the variety in the types of services available provide an opportunity for volunteers to find a job that is enjoyable and fulfilling to their individual personality.
