Whether they are escorting a patient to a physical therapy session or offering a smile and a word of encouragement to a visiting family member, volunteers make a valuable contribution to the health care team at Jefferson Regional Medical Center. Their skills and energies complement the services provided to patients and visitors.
An ambitious group of adults as well as students (at least 14 years of age) from area middle and high schools comprise our army of volunteers. Adults and teens annually donate more than 100,000 hours of their time and talents to Jefferson Regional Medical Center.
Volunteers are called upon to assist staff in many areas.
- Patient escorts
- Guest Shoppe and gift cart services
- Physical/Occupational therapy
- Main Lobby information desk
- Mail room assistance
- Nursing unit assistance
- Patient representatives
- Intensive care and emergency department hosts
- Spiritual care representatives
But volunteering isn't all about giving. Medical Center volunteers receive personal dividends in return for their countless hours of service. Volunteers learn new skills, make new friends and develop new interests while realizing that they're making a difference in other people's lives.
