Turlock, Calif. – Are you looking to make a difference in people’s lives? Volunteering at Emanuel Medical Center can be a great way to have a profound impact on people in our community.
The volunteers at Emanuel Medical Center are dedicated to helping the hospital maintain its goal of excellence in healthcare. Our staff is dedicated to a philosophy of care, compassion and commitment, and our volunteers help drive that philosophy home. Volunteers are a vital part of the hospital, providing a great resource for patients, families, visitors and employees.
“Volunteering with us is a great way to give back to our community, learn about healthcare and be part of something special,” said Murali Naidu, M.D., CEO of Emanuel Medical Center. “Our volunteers provide thousands of hours of compassionate service every year to help enrich the experience of our patients, their families and our hospital staff. We are so grateful for their commitment and dedication to our hospital and our community.”
Volunteering has its rewards:
- The chance to make new friends
- Feel needed and fulfilled
- Develop new interests
- Share your talents
- Annual flu shot
- Community service
- Participate in hospital activities
- Make a different in the lives of others
Volunteers are generally placed according to need and may be moved to fill important openings. However, we try to align positions with each volunteer’s special skills and talents, when possible. They serve in many areas of the hospital including: gift shop, surgery waiting room desk, emergency department, cancer center and front desk. Volunteers might be asked to greet patients and families, organize charts or help with many other functions around Emanuel.
Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Tuberculosis (TB) testing will be provided by the hospital. Volunteers typically commit to one, 3-4 hour shift per week.
