At Jane Phillips Medical Center, our volunteers are exceptional individuals who take the extra steps that make a difference in another person's life. They help in countless ways by making a child giggle or an older person smile. They deliver mail and flowers to hospitalized patients. They comfort families who are worried about loved ones. Through deeds, large and small, volunteers help patients and their families to feel better during difficult times. In addition to helping care for our patients, volunteers greet visitors at the reception desk, staff the gift shop, deliver medications to the nursing units, provide the Children's Day program to area kindergarten classes, and assist with a variety of clerical duties in various departments throughout the medical center. JPMC volunteers have always served as a friendly bridge between the hospital and the community at large.
The first volunteers, or auxilians, at Jane Phillips Medical Center, were organized in 1959 and provided assistance in seven hospital services. Today, nearly 150 volunteers work in 20 services and in the last year tallied over 17,000 volunteer hours. Our volunteers come from all walks of life. Some are students, some are employees of local businesses and corporations, and others are retired.
All come with a common purpose: to help Jane Phillips Medical Center meet its mission...which is to be responsive to the needs of those we serve. Our volunteers are vital to the success of our mission.
Whether young in age or young at heart, Jane Phillips Medical Center volunteers share their hearts and their talents in service to the hospital, its patients, visitors, and guests. Whether working with patients in one or more of the patient care service areas, or providing great customer service to visitors and guests in the gift shop or information desk, or working in support of hospital staff in a variety of clerical services, JPMC volunteer partners truly bring an added measure of quality to JPMC's commitment to customer service and satisfaction.
