Helping a patient get settled in. Guiding a visitor to the right room. Quietly reassuring family members waiting for a report from surgery. Volunteers are a vital thread in the fabric of a successful and caring hospital.
Whether working in clinical departments, delivering mail and books to patients, or providing support to families and visitors, volunteers are essential members of the care team.
As a volunteer, you’ll gain personal satisfaction and lasting friendships, and you'll receive recognition for your service, access to special educational programs, and free lunch when you work a shift of four hours or more. Discount tickets and reserved parking are also available.
There are many opportunities for volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, experiences and interests. To learn more about volunteering at Olathe Medical Center, call Tara Flackus at 913-791-4380. For Miami County Medical Center opportunities, e-mail Juanita Sprinkle or call 913-294-6640.
During the summer, Student Ambassadors are an important addition to Olathe Medical Center. Our Student Ambassadors range in age from 14 to 18 years, and they have the opportunity to work in the same areas as adult volunteers. Students interested in the summer program should contact the Volunteer Services Office in January and February to be considered for the upcoming summer.
