The Twin Cities volunteer organization operates as a non-profit and consists of 71 active volunteers, serving the hospital in fifteen designated areas including the ER, ICU/DOU, OSU, and front desk. In addition to aiding in hospital administration and patient services, the volunteers also support its high school student volunteer program through mentorship and by running the hospital’s gift shop, the proceeds from which fund scholarships for those student volunteers entering college.
“Our volunteers are a vital part of our facility and can be found throughout the hospital guiding visitors, answering questions and contributing to the positive image of Twin Cities,” says Rick Lyons, Twin Cities Community Hospital CEO.
