A strong volunteer program enhances the patient experience, improves satisfaction for both staff and patients, and strengthens the community. What volunteers receive is just as important – a fun, caring environment that recognizes their time and talents while enabling them to give back to others.
As a volunteer, you are considered a member of the Gritman family, which means you are responsible to the medical center and our patients. You are required to observe the same code of ethics as our professional staff, adhere to our policies and procedures and protect patient confidentiality.
Every day, volunteer contributions of time and energy make it possible for Gritman Medical Center to fulfill its mission to provide exceptional health care.
The Gritman Auxiliary supports the hospital in a variety of ways. If you are looking to join a close-knit group that is passionate about lending a helping hand, look no further than the Gritman Auxiliary. Share your skills, make new friends and get involved with your community by becoming a Gritman Auxilian.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life; some have a history in health care, others simply have a desire to give back. Gritman Auxilians can be seen throughout the hospital volunteering in many areas. Volunteer opportunities include Bertie’s Gift Shop, and the Information Desk.
In addition to volunteering time, the Auxiliary raises funds to reinvest in the hospital through grants and scholarships. To date, the Gritman Auxiliary has raised more than $700,000 in support of key initiatives.
All active Auxilians must volunteer a minimum of 25 hours each year to support the hospital. Membership is $5 a year. Patron Auxilians do not have a requirement for volunteer hours, and the membership contribution is a minimum of $10 annually.Become a member
Be a leader in your community, make new friends and experience the health care field firsthand through Gritman Medical Center’s Junior Volunteer (JV) Program.
The JV program allows teens to experience working in a hospital setting while learning new skills and building character. Junior Volunteers come from many different schools and walks of life, making the JV program a great way to meet new people and give back to your community.
There are a variety of volunteer opportunities in the JV program, from assisting at community events to helping with patient care. Junior Volunteers also participate in fundraising, community back-to-school and food drives, and provide an extra hand at community outreach classes. Our Junior Volunteers provide the extra touches throughout the hospital that make a substantial difference to our staff and patients’ lives.Get Involved
