Auxiliary

The Maury Regional Medical Center Auxiliary is a service organization chartered by the American Hospital Association. Its purpose is to provide a group of trained volunteers to assist in designated areas within the medical center.

The group was organized several months before the first patient was admitted in December 1953 and there have been volunteers on duty ever since. The group began with an impressive 127 charter members and now has 400 volunteers who give freely of their time and talents by serving in 28 service areas throughout the medical center.

The Auxiliary funds special requests from various departments of the medical center through membership dues, fund-raising activities, and revenues generated from the operation of the Gift Shop and Java Junction.

Compassionate Hearts

Compassionate Hearts is a program designed to support the spiritual and emotional needs of our patients and their family members. Volunteer Services will coordinate and train volunteers to work with members of nursing, pastoral care and social services staff. These volunteers will visit critically ill patients who have no local family and friends and provide respite to family members who need to leave a patient's bedside. For more information about the program or becoming a volunteer, please contact Volunteer Services at 931.380.4047.

MASH Student Program

The Maury Academy for Students in Health (MASH) Program is a two-week health careers summer camp for high school students interested in learning about health professions. The 2016 MASH program will be held June 6-17. Exposure to different areas of medicine and health-related professions is an integral part of the MASH experience. Students interact with experts such as physicians, registered nurses, medical technologists, radiologic technologists, respiratory therapists and pharmacists. During the program, students learn about physical assessment, casting, suturing, medical terminology and much more. Considerations will be made for those interested in job shadowing after the program. Applicants must be entering their junior or senior year in high school, have completed one biology class, demonstrate scholastic ability and critical thinking skills and provide recommendations from school personnel. Students must also attend an interview as part of the application process.

Click below for an application for the 2016 MASH program. Completed applications must be submitted to the Volunteer Services office no later than March 1. For more information, call 931.380.4047.

Junior Volunteers

The Junior Volunteer program is open to those age 15 and older who have completed their freshman year of high school. Students must have at least a 3.0 grade point average. Those under the age of 18 must have approval of their parent or guardian. Each junior volunteer must commit to serve at least 100 hours each year. Junior volunteers may be assigned to work in a variety of areas including patient care areas, nursing stations, information desks, registration areas and the Auxiliary Gift Shop. To learn more about the Junior Volunteer program, contact Volunteer Services at 931.380.4047.

Music Program

The purpose of this program is to provide appropriate, soothing music to our patients and visitors in an effort to help ease their stress and anxiety. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for those with a musical talent they would like to share, including those who work, but only have a limited time in which to offer their services. Hours can be very flexible.

Pet Therapy

Pet visits brighten the stay of patients in our care. Studies have shown that physical contact with a pet can lower anxiety, reduce high blood pressure and, in some cases, cause the release of endorphins--chemicals in the body that help to reduce the pain response. Only certified pet handlers and their animals may apply for this program. For more information about becoming a volunteer or arranging a pet visit, please contact Volunteer Services at 931.380.4047.
