MDH Invites Area Youth to Join Summer Volunteens

5/8/2012

Macomb--McDonough District Hospital invites area youth 13 years and older to join the MDH Volunteen Program. The summer session runs from June 11 through August 3. Teens can gain valuable work experience and exposure to health care professions by volunteering as little as three hours every other week or as many as nine hours per week with a variety of shifts available, all under the supervision of a department staff member.

You have the choice of volunteering on patient care floors or assisting with clerical or other behind the scenes departments throughout the hospital. You’ll work side-by-side with nurses, technicians, therapists, and other health care or business professionals. You may choose to work in Customer Service, Physical Therapy, Transitional Care, Nursing Floor, X-ray, Lab, Day Health Services, outdoors or in another areas within the Hospital.

Volunteens may help transport patients, socialize with elderly patients, deliver flowers, assist with crafts, play music or sing, file, and much more! Through the program, volunteens will gain hands-on experience with the opportunity to explore a variety of health care careers. They will also build new friendships with other volunteers, employees, and patients and their families. Most important of all—teens will get satisfaction from knowing they’re helping others and making a difference!

 

Pre-registration for the program and an interview are required. Area teens are encouraged to sign up today by calling (309) 836-1579 for an application and to register for an interview and orientation.
