Volunteer Auxiliary

​​Taking the Time.

The volunteers at St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital share more 
than just a friendly smile and a helpful hand, they share their most priceless gift, their time. For just a few hours a week, volunteers offer a part of themselves to serve the hospital and the community. These men and women are dedicated to meeting the needs of patients and their families, helping the hospital provide the most efficient and exceptional care possible and funding the purchase of equipment and other items that provide quality care.

If you are willing to donate some of your time to make St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital a more comfortable place for patients and families, the volunteer auxiliary provides a wide variety of service opportunities to fit your talents and gifts as well as your schedule.
