| Mon General's Volunteer Program
Mon General has over 160 volunteers who contribute more than 28,000 hours to the health system each year. We are fortunate to have such a large and diverse group of volunteers, who give their time and talents to our hospital. Our volunteers are an vital part of our staff, volunteering independently and alongside our staff. Their value and use is evident as you will find a Mon General Volunteer around almost every corner you turn.
In addition to contributing their time, many volunteers are members of the Auxiliary of Mon General. Auxiliary members hold various events to raise money for the hospital. Those funds along with proceeds from the hospital’s Gift Shop are donated back to the hospital. Funds are used to purchase new medical equipment, support various projects that directly affect patient care and constructing and renovating new areas. The Auxiliary has donated a great deal of money over the years, most recently donated $1 million dollars to the Foundation of Mon General for construction on the New South Tower.
