The Auxiliary provides the volunteer support base for service, fund–raising and friend–raising for Kona Community Hospital. Membership in the Auxiliary is open to women and men eighteen years or older (with some exceptions) of all backgrounds and abilities, who are interested in providing supplementary services to patients and the community.
Volunteers help the staff in Administration or various hospital departments by providing patient services such as book cart or volunteering in the gift shop. Auxiliary volunteers assist in fundraising activities such as the Annual Benefit or helping with the weekly bake sale at the cafeteria. They also participate in many community activities such as Relay For Life representing the Auxiliary and Kona Community Hospital.
The Auxiliary also provides a number of nursing scholarships for qualified candidates and continuing education funds for KCH staff. In addition, the Auxiliary also may fund special requests from various hospital departments for unbudgeted necessities.
The KCH Auxiliary provides a communication link between the community and the Kona Community Hospital. Community inputs through the Auxiliary are welcomed and warmly received by the administration and staff. We welcome your interest and invite your active participation.
