COVINGTON, Ga. - Auxiliary volunteers are always familiar and friendly faces at Piedmont Newton Hospital, whether they are in the gift shop, assisting patients and visitors at the information desk or raising funds for a variety of hospital projects.
In recognition of National Healthcare Volunteer Week, which is April 8 through 12, Piedmont Newton Hospital is extending a thank you to the Piedmont Newton Hospital Auxiliary and Volunteers for their accomplishments and contributions to the hospital.
“Our volunteers are ambassadors who provide support to the hospital on a daily basis for which we are undoubtedly grateful,” Andrea Lane, director of community relations for Piedmont Newton, said. “We appreciate their dedication to helping this community and the hospital and salute them for a job well done. The Piedmont Newton Hospital Auxiliary and Volunteers are second to none.”
The auxiliary coordinates several community activities each year, including jewelry sales, scrubs sales, a golf tournament, and on Friday, April 26, a Concert and Hangar Party featuring Yacht Rock Revue.
This year, the auxiliary is supporting the Piedmont Newton Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center’s Diabetic Limb Salvage Program through the purchase of equipment to measure the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to the tissue to diagnose peripheral vascular disease.
“With the support and generosity of our auxiliary and community, we are able to enhance patient care at Piedmont Newton,” Lane said. “Our auxiliary and volunteers are part of the fabric of our hospital and the care we provide close to home.”
