Southeast depends on its volunteers

Jeanne PoeVolunteers at Southeast Hospital wrap the gift of time with a special talent for caring.

Southeast Hospital's Auxiliary volunteers contribute more than 45,000 hours annually. The Auxiliary includes over 500 members and works closely with students from the Southeast Missouri University.

There are no age restrictions for adult volunteers. Every effort is made to pair each volunteer’s interest and time availability with service opportunities open at the time. People from all over the region are active participants in the volunteer program.

All adult volunteers join the Auxiliary and dues are $5 a year. Volunteers can buy smocks and vests at cost or borrow them while on duty.

Each summer, Southeast sponsors a popular Junior Volunteer program for young people age 14-18.
