COVID-19 Message

To our current volunteers:

The novel Corona virus (COVID-19) has had an impact on how we need to protect our patients at this time. We have all seen many things in the media that emphasize how we need to halt the progression of this virus by quarantine.

It is our top priority to make sure that the patients in our hospitals and the people in our community stay safe and are protected from possible infection.

Therefore, effective Monday, March 16, we ask that all volunteers temporarily suspend coming in to our hospitals and stay home for everyone’s ultimate safety. We will inform you when this temporary suspension has been lifted.

Please be assured your volunteer positions will be held for you.

Events like “Bring Back the Night” and “Hats Off” will also be suspended until we have received word that they can be rescheduled. Check with your local hospital for other events that are suspended.

All of our gift shops will be temporarily closed.

Please reach out to your volunteer leader with any questions or concerns you may have. We thank you for your patience, understanding and commitment. We are so very blessed to have you as part of our HSHS family.

Auxiliary Group


In addition to their volunteer hours within the hospital, members of the auxiliary group known as Partners of HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital, provide significant financial assistance through their fundraising events. For example, the 2016 Christmas Love Lights contributions supported our Emergency Services in purchasing the life-saving LUCAS compression system. Earnings from the annual holiday cookie sales, bakeless bake sale, book sale and our "Taste of Fall" wine and beer tasting event supports the HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital Cancer Services program. Additionally, each year the Partners donate the Gift Shop proceeds directly back to the hospital for the benefit of purchasing equipment to enhance the quality care and comfort of our patients. 

We are fortunate and grateful to have people who are generous with their time and resources.
