Crescent City — Do you have free time that you want to use to make a difference to the people in the community? Consider volunteering at Sutter Coast Hospital.

The hospital is looking for volunteers that want to give back and learn new skills to join its tight-knit team. In the hospital, volunteers will have the opportunity to help others in several areas of the hospital, including the hospital gift shop, lobby information desk and the surgery waiting area.

“As a community hospital, we rely on the heartfelt efforts of volunteers,” said Jamie Forkner, human resources partner at Sutter Coast Hospital. “There are several programs and ways for new volunteers to participate in helping Sutter Coast Hospital fulfill its commitment to providing compassionate and high quality care to the community.”

Volunteers are asked to commit to one four-hour shift per week, for a minimum of one year. Prospective volunteers must be in good health and at least 16 years old. All potential volunteers will receive a background check and must attend a volunteer orientation class before beginning to work in specific area with a regularly scheduled shift.

“Our volunteers donate thousands of hours each year to our hospital,” said Mitch Hanna, Sutter Coast Hospital CEO. “From students to seniors, we appreciate every hour our volunteers contribute to our hospital community.”

The hospital’s Student Volunteer Program gives high school students a chance to discover the rewards and challenges of working in a medical facility.

“Joining our volunteer team is a great way to meet and interact with new people while giving back to the community,” said Karen Rosenberg, Sutter Coast Hospital volunteer for more than six years. “I volunteer because I find it very rewarding, I have become part of a community that makes a difference.”

For more information on volunteering at Sutter Coast Hospital, please call the hospital gift shop at 707-464-8511 ext 4220. All volunteers will need to complete an application that is available at the hospital gift shop (open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
