The Volunteer Services Department coordinates the services and activities of the Cabell Huntington Hospital Auxiliary and the Teen Volunteers throughout the hospital. These volunteers, who total over 150 members, donate their time and provide vital services to ensure that patients and visitors have a pleasant hospital experience. The quarterly volunteer newsletter offers information about their activities.
This group of volunteers is involved in various fund-raising activities. Through their commitment and hard work, they have raised money for critical care ambulances, completion of the dialysis center and a major gift toward the North Patient Tower Construction.

The Coffee Cart is in the cafeteria from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Monday through Friday to sell doughnuts, snacks, fruit and beverages.
The Teen Volunteers work on the nursing units, distributing ice and food trays, running errands, reading to the patients, writing letters for patients and generally assisting the nursing staff. Several area schools give credits to their students who volunteer at the hospital.
KID ID is a program that provides sets of stickers for children with car seats. One sticker is placed on the back of the car seat. Before attaching it, parents write down contact and medical information about the child in case of an accident where the adult driving the car is unable to give that information to the EMS or Emergency Department. The other sticker is a window decal to alert EMS staff to read the sticker on the car seat.
Stickers will be given to all new parents before their baby is discharged from the hospital. If you would like stickers for a friend or family member, stop by the Information Desk in the atrium or call 304-526-2113.
