Rumford Hospital volunteers serve in many capacities from
filing to hosting public events, to comforting
babies. Volunteers must make the same commitment to
confidentiality that is made by staff members and, when first
becoming a volunteer, must attend the regular hospital orientation
Volunteers are also given annual TB tests and initial tests to detemine their immunity to several comon diseases. These tests are free to volunteers as is the 'mini-physical' offered by our Occupational Health Nurse.
Two popular volunteer programs are Patient Visitors, in which volunteers do exactly what the title suggests, and Lobby Hosts, who greet and act as way-finders for patients and visitors who come into the front lobby in the early morning hours.
