The Volunteer Services Department at NFRMC offers volunteers an opportunity to contribute their time and talents to improve the quality of service to our patients, family members, physicians and staff. Although our volunteers do not perform medical or nursing duties, they do bring an extra touch of kindness to our patients and visitors.
Each volunteer is evaluated on his or her special skills during the interview process. Whatever your background, whether you are a retired executive, a retired homemaker, retired military, or a college student interested in a medical career, your talents will be utilized to the fullest.
Volunteer areas include:
- Main Information Desk
- Women’s Center Surgical Services Waiting Room
- Courtesy Golf Cart
- Inpatient Surgical Services Waiting Room
- Outpatient Surgical Services and Endoscopy Waiting Room
- Clerical Support
- Women’s Center Information Desk.
Even if you only have four hours to spare each week, volunteering can teach you new job skills or provide you with the strong feeling of self worth that you get from donating your time to helping others.
For more information call (352) 333-4585.
