I have always thought that one of the prime benefits was that you became comfortable in the hospital surroundings, and got to know the people there. Come the time you had to be there to USE the hospital, you were more comfortable and less afraid of the institution because it was familiar!
Buena Vista Regional Medical Center volunteers can be found throughout the hospital and community performing a variety of duties.
Volunteers are trained yearly and are required to fulfill confidentiality and health requirements prior to becoming a part of our team.
