Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are important participants in RMC’s patient- and family-centered care initiative. You will have the opportunity to help patients and families feel supported through their stay or visit.

As a contributor to the patient- and family-centered care environment, volunteers at RMC will be involved in a variety of these vital activities:

  • Manage and operate the Hospital Gift Shop

  • Provide administrative support in administrative offices
  • Run errands for patient care units
  • Answer patient information calls
  • Socialize with family and visitors while hosting the waiting areas and serving up a cup of fresh brewed coffee and a smile

  • Direct patients’ families and friends to hospital units, clinics or other destinations
