Med Center Health Volunteers play a vital role in enhancing the quality of care given to our communities. They brighten the day and provide companionship for our patients and their family members, as well as invaluable staff support services.
Volunteers are adult men and women of all ages and backgrounds. They contribute their time on either a regular or occasional basis; schedules are set to meet the needs of the volunteers and The Medical Center. Most volunteers donate a half day once a week. A special volunteer summer program in June and July is available for teenagers age 14 to 17.
The basic qualifications necessary to be a volunteer are a caring attitude and an interest in helping others, dependability, a commitment to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of our patients and the ability to give a minimum 100-hour time commitment within a year.
The rewards for volunteering are numerous: personal growth; opportunity to learn new skills, develop new interests and make new friends; and satisfaction that comes with helping others. Volunteers are recognized for the hours they serve and the contributions they make through an appreciation luncheon and other events.
