Emergency Healthcare Volunteers
Sheridan Memorial Hospital (SMH) is seeking emergency healthcare volunteers to help with our COVID-19 response. We have seen hospitals around the country, and the world, experience patient surges exceeding normal capacities. SMH is assembling a pool of volunteers to join our team and work alongside our dedicated, hardworking, highly trained staff to provide skilled, compassionate care should the need arise for our community.
We are looking for healthcare professionals including active, student, or inactive/retired physicians, advanced practice clinicians (physician assistants and nurse practitioners), Respiratory Therapists, RNs, LPNs, CNAs, paramedics, EMTs, mental health professionals, social workers, medical technicians and therapists, and people with experience as health aides or in medical offices. We are also very interested in hearing from all other health professionals.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about volunteering here at Sheridan Memorial Hospital (SMH). We couldn’t do what we do every day without the kind and selfless hearts of our volunteers. With over 100 active volunteers, and a dozen areas served, the SMH Volunteer Program is a diverse opportunity for anyone to help contribute to healthcare in Sheridan.
Become A Volunteer
By giving of their time and truly unique talents, our generous helpers contribute thousands of hours each year to support hospital operations and patient satisfaction. Regardless of the role, each position allows for volunteers to make a difference in the lives of Sheridan Memorial Hospital employees, patients, family members and guests.
Volunteering to help others is not only a wonderful way to support your community, it also promotes wellness and an active lifestyle. SMH Volunteers enjoy free meals in our cafeteria after working a 4-hour shift, are provided the opportunity to become member of the Auxiliary, receive invitations to exclusive volunteer events and all hospital employee events like our annual Christmas Party.
The safety and comfort of our patients, staff and guests is very important to us. All volunteers must complete an application and orientation process with our Volunteer Services Coordinator.
