Become a Volunteer

Matagorda Regional Medical Center (星际娱乐app) Auxiliary had its beginning in the year 1958, when a need for hospital volunteer workers became apparent. Numerous trips were made to visit hospitals in Houston, where the founding members met with already-established auxiliaries. However, it wasn’t until 1960 that the auxiliary was formed under the urging of Mrs. Helen Cowart and Mrs. Rose Cannon. The first recorded minutes of the organization were taken at a meeting on December 5, 1960 in the Service Center at 9:30am. The presiding officer was Mrs. Helen Cowart.

The auxiliary constitution was written and approved by the Hospital Board. The local auxiliary is affiliated with the Texas Association of Healthcare Volunteers. The charter membership was a total of 81 members.

The auxiliary is looking for women and men who are interested in volunteering three or more hours a week in the hospital. The rewards are knowing you made a difference in someone else’s world.

The purpose of our organization is to serve our community and 星际娱乐app. We pledge to treat patients, their families, the physicians and staff, and our fellow volunteers with dignity and respect.  We are committed to a culture of partnership, trust, co-operation, and collaboration to provide value and quality care to Matagorda Regional Medical Center and its patients.
