Atlantic General Hospital and Health System’s volunteers were honored recently at the healthcare organization’s annual Auxiliary awards luncheon. Volunteers who donated between 100 and 1,200 hours of service to Atlantic General received recognition.
This past year, the AGH Auxiliary donated 38, 966 hours of their time, saving the hospital more than $400,000 in wages and benefits.
In addition to their time, the Auxiliary has also given financial support. Their annual fundraisers and socials have helped fund many projects and services throughout the hospital including the expansion of the emergency department, surgical services, the Atlantic Health Center and the pharmacy along with development of the patient electronic record keeping service and the patient portal.
