When you join Marina Del Rey Hospital's team of volunteers, you become part of a diverse, caring group of community members. Teenagers, retirees, college students, people who aren't working and people from all lines of work - we welcome individuals and groups with the willingness and energy to contribute. They have one thing in common: when they're representing Marina Del Rey Hospital, patients' well-being is their ultimate focus and most cherished value.
Our volunteer corps currently has over 50 members from age 18 to 88. From welcoming patients and guests, visiting patients to provide them with reading materials, answering telephones, making copies, and other office tasks - we can always use a helping hand. Our volunteers are essential to many aspects of hospital operations, and it is rewarding for them too - the fulfillment of helping others, valuable experience in a friendly hospital environment, and the opportunity to learn are just a few of the ways our volunteers benefit.
We have a process in place to ensure that our volunteers are prepared and suitable for the tasks and environment within the hospital. Prospective volunteers undergo interviews, have physical examinations to ensure they are capable of safely performing job duties, and discuss with us the level of commitment they're willing to take on.
We request that volunteers commit to a reasonable number of hours overall, and when they take on a shift, we ask that they work at least a certain number of hours that day. Of course everyone's individual circumstances and other commitments are taken into account, and we're happy to make an arrangement that works for everyone. And we're successful at it - in 2013, our volunteers contributed 7,000 hours of their time.
We recognize that our volunteers are giving us a precious gift of their time. For that, our volunteers have our deepest gratitude, as well as the fulfillment that is felt when you contribute to your community here in Marina Del Rey. If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers, please contact us at 310.823.8911.
