Did you know that North Arkansas Regional Medical Center is home to an active Volunteer Auxiliary?
The NARMC Auxiliary currently has 135 active volunteers and donates more than 40,000 hours of service each year. The NARMC Auxiliary began as the Boone County Hospital Auxiliary in 1961 with 19 volunteers and soon grew into what it is today.
One of the auxiliary’s main goals is to provide funds for projects, equipment and resources. Since 2006, the NARMC Auxiliary has donated more than $972,000 to provide vital medical equipment and services to the community. Recently, the NARMC Auxiliary has purchased wheelchairs, defibrillators, scanners, blanket warmers and more for patient care at the hospital. They also donated to the EMS building fund and new tower construction.
There are numerous opportunities for serving at NARMC. When joining the auxiliary, we can help you choose the area that best fits your skills and schedule.

Volunteering is for all ages. Beginning this summer, NARMC is now offering a junior volunteer program year round. Ages 15-18 are encouraged to apply. This program gives students a first-hand look at the medical field. Junior volunteers are under the direct supervision of NARMC employees and contribute to the overall quality of care NARMC offers the community.
