The Northside Hospital-Cherokee Auxiliary assists the hospital with a tremendous amount of volunteer hours and financial assistance. Approximately 75 active volunteers, ranging in age from 18 to 99, work in more than 15 areas throughout the hospital. Annually, these volunteers give more than 12,000 hours of service back to the hospital and community, adding a special caring touch as they interact with patients and families throughout the hospital.
The Northside Hospital-Cherokee Auxiliary Scholarship is an annual scholarship to assist those pursuing a health-related educational program as a student in an accredited college, university or health-related technical school. The scholarship is awarded based on documented need and the number of applicants. Current auxilians, Northside employees and their immediate family members are eligible. In 2012, three $1,000 scholarships were awarded.
