We are dedicated to helping Augusta University fulfill its mission to set the standard of excellence in education, research and clinical care. Our volunteers continue to grow and support staff, patients and families.
Volunteer Services main goal is to integrate volunteers throughout the academic health center where they have the greatest impact to AU Health's patients and staff. In doing this, Volunteer Services is also devoted to providing a meaningful experience for the volunteer that aligns with the hospital's mission and the volunteer's goals and desire to give back to the community.
