Auxiliary to UHNBC


The Auxiliary to University Hospital of Northern B.C. has been an integral part of the hospital since 1919 except  during the war years when it was not actively functioning. We are a non-profit community based society that is committed to the enhancement of health care in our hospital. Our strength lies with our members who dedicate their time, support and knowledge in one of our many services.

To provide resources, volunteers and funding.
To foster and promote the well-being and comfort of patients.
To provide scholarships and bursaries to students attending public post-secondary Institutions.
To operate a Thrift Shop and Gift Shop to generate income to support the above purposes.


Christmas Sale at the Gift shop




Starting MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2016







Variety, the Children's Charity Telethon was recently held.  For this occasion Canfor donated 4 boxes of Teddy Bears to Spirit of the North for distribution where needed.  The wonderful news is that the Spirit of the North has given the Auxiliary ER Service all of the bears for hand out when needed in ER.  Incredible and SO appreciated.  Our littlest patients will now have something to cuddle while they wait to be treated by the medical staff.


A New Auxiliary Service

The dietary staff at UHNBC is trying hard to make the patients' stay in hospital as pleasant as possible.  The Auxiliary has been asked to help. This service is about trying to cut waste as well as trying to give patients some choices of what appears on their food tray. We visit the new patients, go over their choices then return the planning menus to the dietary department. The Auxiliary is still needing volunteers to help in this service, so if you are a people person and like to spend time with patients, this might just be the service for you.  Please fill out the application forms found on the website if you'd like to help out!!


Thank You to our Information Desk Volunteers

The Auxiliary to UHNBC is proud to recognize the hard work of the volunteers who run our Inforrmation Desk!!  The University Hospital of Northern British Columbia is a BIG place!   The Information Desk is located at the front entrance to the hospital and directly across from the Gift Shop.  Visitors and patients to the hospital are greeted with a friendly welcome and given directions to all areas of the hospital. They can tell visitors where they can find friends and relatives who are currently in the hospital.  They can direct patients to the lab or to Ambulatory Care or to x-ray or even to Tim Hortons!!!  These folks really do 'know it all!!'  Many thanks to Gaye Sache who is the convenor and scheduler for all of these volunteers.
