Founded in January 1984 to support the aims and objectives of Rehoboth McKinley Christian Hospital (RMCH), the Auxiliary has supported the hospital through volunteer service and fundraising efforts ever since. This non-profit group is comprised of community volunteers dedicated to brightening the stays of RMCH patients by delivering encouragement and support throughout the hospital.
The Auxiliary’s support includes operating a thrift shop, the hospital gift shop and the hospital information desk. The Auxiliary is very active in coordinating programs and events, such as quarterly blood drives, the Gallup Balloon Rally Breakfast, the RMCHCS Community Health Fair and Charity Invitational.

Pastoral Care volunteers are trained clergy who offer pastoral services with patients in crisis as well as lead church services and bible studies in units like the BHS Addictions Unit.

Hospice volunteers are trained to help patients and their families with an array of services. They can stay with the patient so the care giver can have a break. They can help patients by reading to them, reminiscing, creating memory books or just sitting and keeping company. They may also offer a specific skill (for example, a massage, home maintenance, music, etc.) to be used by hospice patients and their families.
The Auxiliary has a high school youth program that provides volunteer opportunities for young people interested in pursuing healthcare related fields. For more information on the youth program, call Christina Nye, Auxiliary Youth Volunteer Coordinator at 505-722-6986.
Each year the Auxiliary awards scholarships to students who are in their second year of studies or more in a healthcare related field of study.
