Improve your well being and longevity by volunteering


Top 10 reasons

So, besides improving your health, why should you consider volunteering at Weatherford Regional? Here are 10 top reasons:

10. Make someone else’s day.

By being the first person a patient or a guest sees when they come to the hospital or spending time with patients who may not have many visitors, a volunteer has the opportunity to provide comfort and compassion, as well as set the tone for a patient or guest’s experience while in the hospital.

9. Have fun.

When you volunteer doing something you love, the time will fly. And you’ll meet a variety of like-minded volunteers – soon-to-be friends.

8. Satisfaction.

It’s almost guaranteed that when you help others, you will enjoy a greater sense of self worth.

7. Explore career opportunities.

Young adults volunteering at WRMC have exposure to learn whether they’d like to pursue a medical career.

6. Get off the couch.

Volunteering gives you a reason to wake up and get motivated.

5. Learn new skills.

Young adults who volunteer will learn a great deal, and gain valuable work experience. They can also include their service on their resumé for future college applications and jobs.

4. Fulfill graduation requirements.

If you need volunteer hours to graduate from high school or college, WRMC has opportunities. Fulfill course requirements while learning, meeting new friends and having fun.

3. Make someone’s day.

Your extra efforts to assist our healthcare team or help a patient or guest more comfortable can mean the world of difference to them.

2. Become a part of a team.

Experience the camaraderie of working with others on a common goal and sharing the reward of making a difference in another person’s life. Whether you’re a soon-to-be graduate, considering a career change, or enjoying retirement, volunteering with a team will enhance your life.

1. You’ll be appreciated.

At WRMC, we love our volunteers. We respect their time and appreciate their giving of their talents.
