Volunteer Program at Bluefield Regional Medical Center
For some, being a Volunteer at BRMC means taking the time to fill a water pitcher for a patient, reading their mail to them, or reading the card from a floral arrangement that has just arrived. Being a Volunteer may also mean delivering patient mail, escorting patients to various departments for testing or to their assigned rooms when admitted. Or, comforting families who are awaiting loved ones in surgery, informing interested families/patients about Lifeline, assisting a patient in need of a wig, or providing service to families and visitors in the gift shop. Other Volunteers may assist visitors with patient room information or use their talent in making patient tray favors for Holidays or just being there for those who are in need.
The BRMC Volunteers bring special warmth which often answers the emotional needs of their patients, families and visitors. The smile of a Volunteer and the devotion of an "extra" hand are always welcome. The non-professional supplemental services performed by the BRMC Volunteers cannot be evaluated in terms of dollars, but their gift of time, talents and interests are expressions of the spirit of the regional citizens. BRMC Volunteers represent a cross section of all walks of life in our communities. Males, females, senior citizens, retired persons, and Junior Volunteers (ages 14-17), all working together with one purpose - to serve as a gift, to patients, visitors and staff, and in turn gaining the self satisfaction, without fanfare, of contributing to the benefit of someone else. A feeling only a BRMC Volunteer can take home with unforgettable and proud memories.
