Piedmont Athens Regional Auxiliary

The Piedmont Athens Regional Auxiliary has grown from 13 charter members to their present membership of over 120 since their founding in 1964. With over 57 years of volunteer work at the hospital, their service areas have included:

The Auxiliary is passionate about scholarships and giving back to future healthcare workers in the Athens community. They have awarded over $230,000 in scholarships to date.

The Piedmont Athens Regional Auxiliary’s tireless efforts help raise funds to offer state of the art equipment and facilities to hospitals patients and staff. With donations totaling $3.7 M since 1977 – the Auxiliary is an integral part of the Piedmont Athens Regional experience.
