Who can be a Hospital Volunteer?
Men or women, over the age of 16, can be a hospital volunteer. We are looking for individuals who want to share their unique talents and time for a few hours per week or periodically.
To be a Volunteer, you will be asked to:
- Complete an application & interview
- Complete lab work requirements
- Complete an orientation
We Train Our Volunteers
An orientation session is provided for all new volunteers. At the orientation you will learn about the services provided at Memorial Health Center, our vision and mission, patients’ rights and the importance of patient confidentiality. You will also be oriented to your specific area where you will be volunteering. Orientation additionally provides safety instructions concerning fire safety, infection control and security measures. Volunteers are considered members of the hospital family and are included in numerous hospital-sponsored events, programs and screenings.
Hospital Volunteers – volunteers provide reception & greeting services at our Information Desk, make deliveries, cashier for the hospital cafeteria (Med Rock Café), provide secretarial assistance, and manage the Gift Nook (selling gifts and novelties).
Memorial Nursing & Rehab Center – volunteers provide companionship to residents through reading and visiting, playing cards, putting together puzzles, and assisting the residents as they participate in planned recreational activities (bingo, outdoor field trips, making crafts) and annual picnic.
Financial Support – volunteers work together and coordinate successful fundraising activities (bake sales, our annual Lites-of-Love campaign). Funds raised are invested in patient amenities at Memorial Health Center or toward college scholarships for local high school students interested in pursuing a medical career.
Community Benefit Events – provide as-needed assistance (greeting, registering, directional guidance, recording of data) during health screening events that Memorial Health Center provides free-of-charge to the communities it serves.
Other Volunteer Opportunities – we will try to match your skills and desire to help others with an assignment that supports the staff and patients of Memorial Health Center.
