Volunteers at Santa Rosa Medical Center are an integral part of the professional team. Our volunteers strive to provide outstanding service and compassionate care to our patients and to the people who accompany them: friends and family. Volunteers serve in many departments throughout the hospital and provide essential support to our hospital staff.
Areas where you can volunteer:
Depending upon available assignments, volunteers can choose between two shift schedules, 8 a.m. - Noon or Noon - 4 p.m. Volunteers also commit to assisting with two hospital sponsored events.
Volunteers sign their own record of attendance. Hours are recorded for annual service awards.
Wearing a volunteer uniform and photo name badge at all times identifies each volunteer as a Santa Rosa Medical Center team member.
Service guidelines exists for each volunteer position. Assignments are determined based on your specific skills, expertise, personality and interests whenever possible.
All new volunteers are required to attend a full day of hospital orientation. Orientation covers aspects such as fire safety, infection control, customer service, HIPAA, confidentiality, etc.
It is critical that all volunteers maintain a high degree of patient confidentiality, including refraining from talking about patients and their illnesses or conditions. Every patient has a right to privacy. In addition, we ask that volunteers not seek professional advice from members of our staff.
Meeting new people, making new friends, learning new skills, and experiencing the rewards of serving others make an invaluable contribution to our community. Join our volunteer team today or request more information by calling our Volunteer Director at (850) 626-5113.
