OCH Regional Medical Center Provides Summer Volunteer Program for Students

OCH Regional Medical Center will host a junior auxiliary interest meeting for students ages 13-18 who wish to volunteer at the Medical Center this summer.  Junior volunteer opportunities include front desk receptionist, visiting patient rooms and helping in the gift shop.

“During the summer, our regular auxiliary members take a break from their volunteer duties while students in our community donate their time to serve the hospital and its patients,” said OCH Volunteer Services Coordinator Lauren Gardner.  “Volunteering also provides valuable work experience for these students.  Many of our junior volunteers have an interest in working in the medical field one day, and this gives them a better understanding of what it’s like to work in a hospital-setting,” continued Gardner.

The summer junior volunteer interest meeting will be held Tuesday, May 31 at noon in the nursing classroom.  New members must purchase an apron for $15. For more information, contact Gardner at 662-615-3065 or lgardner@och.org.
