Woodlawn Hospital AuxiliaryFor more than 65 years, the Woodlawn Hospital Auxiliary has played an active role in the growth of hospital services by supporting new and innovative ways of delivering care to Fulton County and surrounding areas. Members provide extra services which supplement the basic functions of our professional staff, adding to the comfort, care, and happiness of our patients and making their stay as pleasant as possible. Some services include:
sponsoring the hospital volunteer program;
operating the Gift Shop to benefit visitors and staff;
greeting patients and visitors upon arrival;
directing and escorting visitors to their destinations within the hospital;
delivering flower arrangements and gifts to patients and staff;
decorating the lobby with flower arrangements and seasonal decorations;
providing magazines, books, and other items to patients;
assisting the staff as needed in department areas;
furnishing equipment for patient rooms and hospital departments; and
providing scholarships to staff and Fulton County residents.
NOTE: Scholarships for 2016 are being accepted through April 1. Scholarship Applications
In the last 15 years, members have donated over 90,000 volunteer hours to Woodlawn Hospital; provided over $100,000 in department purchases to benefit patient care and over $85,000 in scholarships to Fulton County residents pursuing a degree in healthcare.

In 1956, the Auxiliary sponsored the Gray Ladies to provide daily service to patients and hospital staff. Now, volunteers come from all walks and stages of life: homemakers, professionals, retirees and students age 16 years and up. They vary in age, background, personality, interests and skills. As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to develop new interests, share valuable skills and life experiences to help others, make new friends with similar values and interests, and most importantly, gain personal satisfaction by giving something special back to your community as a valued member of Woodlawn Hospital.
