Volunteer Opportunities

At Mercy, our volunteers put compassion into action.  Our Mercy volunteers’ work is indispensible to the hospital in that it allows the institution to utilize precious resources in the most efficient manner possible.  Likewise, it is invaluable to patients and their families who sometimes desperately need a bit of direction, a helping hand, or even simply a reassuring smile. 

Opportunities for service include:

  • Information Desk Host
  • ICU and Surgery Waiting Rooms Host
  • Patient Escort
  • Summer Volunteen Program
  • Office Work (various departments)
  • Medical Library
  • Other Patient and Visitor Contact Areas

At Mercy, our service is always guided by our cherished core values: Dignity, Justice, Service, Excellence, and Stewardship. 

Please let us know if there is a particular area in which you would like to serve as a volunteer.  Our Volunteer Coordinator can be reached at 479-314-6077.
