Our health community has a supportive volunteer team performing a significant role in patient/client programs throughout South Gippsland Hospital and Community Health Centre. Working alongside salaried members of the hospital staff, volunteers add an important dimension to patient/client care services. We believe our volunteers are proud to be associated with the hospital and community care facilities which provide a quality patient and staff support model. The staff are most appreciative of the time and effort volunteers contribute.
There are varied roles the volunteers undertake, ranging from assorted administration tasks – photocopying, collating, collecting statistical data, filing, folding, ruling up books – to organising flowers and supporting the Planned Activity Groups. The concept of volunteer assistance is an integral part of health services and, upon joining our volunteer team, you can be assured that your efforts will contribute towards achieving our common objective – to provide services which facilitate, maintain and nurture a healthy community.
If you have some free time and think volunteering is for you, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator on 5683 9777 for an appointment to discuss further.
