Many Volunteer Opportunities Offered at ACH
Alliance, OH - Alliance Community Hospital will host its monthly â€œVentures in Volunteeringâ€ orientation program for potential volunteers on Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008 in conference room 1-A, which is located directly through the Cafe. Orientation begins at 1:00 p.m. and lasts until approximately 4:00 p.m.
Each month the â€œVentures in Volunteeringâ€ orientation program is held at the hospital to introduce interested individuals to the mechanics of hospital volunteering. For hospital volunteers, the orientation is a mandatory program that covers everything from Planetree hospital concepts to patient confidentiality to the benefits associated with volunteering at ACH.
â€œWhether they are baking cookies, discharging patients, offering Soft Touch hand-rub treatments, assisting patrons in the Gift Shop or simply holding a patient's hand, our volunteers take their commitment very seriously and take great pride in the services they provide,â€ said Marcia Todd, Coordinator of Volunteer Services at ACH.
â€œThey are more than willing to tackle a challenge and embrace the opportunity to make a positive difference in another's life,â€ Todd adds.
There are 53 clerical and patient-centered service areas from which volunteers may choose to serve.
â€œWith so many service areas to choose from, we are confident that we can provide every volunteer a position they will find both fulfilling and meaningful,â€ said Todd.
ACH volunteers help hospital patients, visitors and colleagues by assisting with financial projects, conducting pet therapy visits and providing research information.
