Providing Valuable Support throughout MMC

Every day, the corps of adult and teen volunteers at Monmouth Medical Center make important contributions to patient care and the operation of the hospital. It would take nearly 20 full-time employees to provide the approximately 40,000 hours of service donated each year by Monmouth Medical Center volunteers.

Ambassadors for the medical center, volunteers are an important part of patient satisfaction efforts as they provide comfort and companionship to patients in the Emergency Department and on the inpatient units. And in offices throughout the medical center, volunteers provide valuable support to hospital employees.

Upon acceptance into the program, volunteers attend an orientation to introduce them to the hospital, its staff and fellow volunteers, and are matched with work that suits their schedule and interests.

Teen volunteers are accepted beginning at age 14 and usually contribute weekdays after school, on weekends or during school recesses.
