Volunteers are an important part of the health care team. Mercy strives to treat each patient with highly skilled care and personal attention. Volunteers play an important role in providing this personal attention. A volunteer's greatest reward is in helping others. Volunteering also offers many opportunities:
Who May Volunteer
Anyone over the age of 16 can apply to be a volunteer. All applicants are interviewed by the volunteer coordinator. Volunteers are placed according to their interests, qualifications and the need of the hospital. All volunteers receive a general orientation to the hospital as well as specific training in their area of service.
Special Benefits Include
Because of the diverse nature of the service areas, the time requirements vary. Even the smallest amount of time is appreciated. Mercy's volunteer coordinator can help you identify a service area within your time availability.
As a volunteer, it is vital that you will keep patient and hospital information strictly confidential. Volunteers serve in a number of different areas. If you choose to become a volunteer, we will strive to place you in an area that is interesting and comfortable for you.
