Thomas Hospital Volunteer Services - Fairhope, AL

Volunteer Services


The Thomas Hospital Auxiliary is made up of more than 400 members who proudly assist our patients, visitors, employees, and physicians. These important members of our hospital family are a loyal and dedicated group who generously give their time and talents to support the Thomas Hospital mission. More than 200 active volunteers staff a total of 17 volunteer service areas and additional staff areas throughout Thomas Hospital in Fairhope and Thomas Medical Center in Daphne. Together, they contribute more than 44,000 hours a year. Our volunteers assist in waiting areas, information desks, gift shop and various hospital departments. They also transport equipment and mail throughout the hospital, and escort patients, visitors and employees to and from the parking lots with our shuttle service. We ask our volunteers to give at least four hours a week for a minimum of six months, and we take into account their interest and availability when placing volunteers in the different Auxiliary service areas.

The Auxiliary also raises money for the Thomas Hospital Foundation year round through the Thomas Hospital Gift Shop and other fundraising events such as uniform, jewelry, book and linen sales. One the Auxiliary’s more recent donations was $500,000 for the new Birth Center. In total, the Auxiliary has donated more than $1.6 million dollars to the Thomas Hospital Foundation. Our volunteers are happy to be of service and enjoy giving their time and talents. Those interested in being a part of this wonderful organization are asked to contact the Auxiliary office at 279-1686 or, or Manager of Volunteer Services Melita Willkie at 279-5525 or
