Whether you’re seeking personal growth, want to build your resume or just get joy from helping others, volunteer opportunities abound at your local hospital. From helping with clerical work to interacting with patients, FirstHealth volunteers help the hospital run smoothly and allow doctors and nurses to spend their time focusing on providing the best healthcare for all.
“In addition to the fact that we absolutely could not provide many of the services that are offered at Moore Regional Hospital without volunteers, we appreciate that diverse community involvement through volunteer support benefits the care provided at Moore Regional,” says Cindy Strother, Administrative Director of Guest Services.
Volunteering can be a mutually beneficial situation, allowing you to gain hands-on experience while helping others. You’ll enjoy a discount in the cafeteria, several recognition events throughout the year, and receive annual TB skin tests and flu vaccines at no charge. Best of all, you’ll feel connected in the community and make some new friends.
Who can give their time? Anyone from students (ages 18+) to retirees who have a few hours a week to spare. Placement is determined during the interview process, and assignments/requirements for training/time commitments depend on each person’s schedules and the hospital’s need. While weekend and evening hours are limited, there are plenty of weekday opportunities to get involved.
To apply, simply submit an application and you will be contacted for a casual interview (don’t worry, no resume required) to discuss skills, interests and schedules. After that comes orientation, a flu vaccine, TB skin test and vaccination documentation (depending on your placement).
