Touching lives, lifting spirits
Our volunteers have provided service to Iredell Memorial Hospital since 1954 and continue to be a vital asset to patients, family, visitors and employees.
Whether delivering flowers, cards or e-greetings to patient rooms, directing visitors, assisting staff in many hospital departments, comforting families in waiting rooms, or covering any of the 19 areas of service they provide, volunteers are invaluable to the day-to-day operations of the hospital. Junior Volunteers also assist in many of these areas during the summer months and late afternoons during school days.
In addition to knowing that you are making a difference in people's lives, the volunteers receive the following benefits:
- Free meal while you are on duty and a free drink during your break.
- Free flu shot in the fall.
- Wellness blood work for $25 annually after you have worked for one year.
- A special banquet is held for volunteers in the spring.
- Service pins are awarded for each 1,000 hours of service.
We want you!
Whether you can work four hours a week, four hours a month or four hours every other week, we want you to be a part of this vital service. Our volunteers enjoy meeting new people and will welcome you to the opportunities and fulfilling work of being a volunteer.
We are always looking to add additional volunteers to our program, especially for late afternoon and weekend positions. Our adult program goes from age 18 and up and the Junior Volunteer program starts at age 15.
