Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary
Our dedicated volunteers have a wide range of responsibilities throughout Hedrick that complement their interests and skills. Members represent many age groups and parts of the community—parents, grandparents, business people, long-time volunteers, and young adults. We would not be the hospital we are today without the efforts of our wonderful volunteers.
How to join our volunteer team
The requirements are few; the rewards are many. Volunteers should be dependable and friendly with flexible schedules. As part of the auxiliary, you’ll experience a welcoming volunteer environment, tasks that suit your interests and skills, the satisfaction of helping others, and a free meal in the Garden Café during your shift.
You must be at least 18 years of age (exceptions made for high school groups and programs).

The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary offers a scholarship program for area residents. Students already enrolled in or admitted to a degree program in a health care field are eligible for the scholarship.
The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 for the purpose of encouraging qualified individuals to pursue or enrich a career in the health care field. Scholarships are awarded annually. To date, $97,500 in scholarships have been awarded to area students.
Each $500 scholarship requires recipients to share their grades and/or school status if requested by the auxiliary. A student may apply for and receive this award each year throughout their degree program.
Application requirements vary each year, though it generally includes biographical information, a short essay, and two letters of recommendation.
The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary Scholarship is open to anyone meeting the above criteria whose permanent address is in a zip code that begins with 646##.
Please check back in spring 2022 for details about the next Auxiliary Scholarship process.
