Getting to know us

What Is The Auxiliary?

Founded on a tradition of service, the CMHS Auxiliary is an organization whose mission is to augment the programs and services of the Community Memorial Health System, a not for profit facility.

Volunteer With Us!

Volunteers at CMHS are the heart of our hospital. Our volunteers share a common spirit, a desire to use their life experiences and education to support patients, visitors and staff.

What do Volunteers Do?

Our volunteers give generously of themselves, each one contributing to the smooth operation of many hospital services. In addition to logging in many hours each year, our volunteers have also purchased numerous items to enhance the caring atmosphere of the hospital.

Some Of The Benefits Available To Volunteers

A complimentary meal ticket for every 10 hours of service per month, complimentary snack for working 2 hours or more, discounted rate for the Fitness Center and Pharmacy.

Free annual vaccines and Workers Compensation and Liability for volunteers while on duty and Annual Awards Luncheon and a Volunteer WeeK Luncheon.
