Each year, more than 100 caring individuals from our community volunteer more than 12,000 hours, carrying out the Vision Statement of Providence St. Mary Medical Center. As a non-profit hospital, we rely on the service of volunteers to provide our patients and visitors with compassionate service and a personal touch—to know patients, to care for patients and to ease their way.
Providence offers many diverse volunteer opportunities involving patient contact, clerical, retail, spiritual care and a special summer volunteer program for high school students.
Volunteer will offer comfort items to patients, including blankets, pillows and magazines; place the call light, remote, telephone and other needed items within reach; visit with patients; and assist nursing staff with errands and other duties.
Volunteer will provide support by stocking supplies, running errands and assisting with turning over rooms and miscellaneous clerical projects.
Volunteer will serve as a liaison between the reception and preoperative areas, update the family on the location of the patient and teach them how to use the OR tracker board, offer comfort measures to preoperative patients and assist the staff with miscellaneous duties, including stripping beds and preparing supplies.
The volunteer application process takes six to eight weeks. We ask for a six-month commitment and a minimum of one four-hour shift per week for all volunteers.
Providence St. Mary Medical Center is very excited to offer a dynamic service-learning opportunity for high school students in the community.
Please feel free to call Patti Lennartson, 509-897-2072 with any questions you may have about the program.
