Volunteers help to enhance the quality of care provided by the staff at St. John’s. Volunteers contribute many extra services and spend quality time with patients, residents, and families. A St. John’s volunteer is a “healing presence” who provides support and hope during troubled times, they are able to focus on the person and not the illness or the injury.
At St. John’s Medical Center we offer a variety of volunteer service opportunities including; Spiritual Care, Living Center support, Pet Partners, Music and Healing, Patient Care Unit support, Oncology, Administration support, and front desk service.
Spiritual Care Volunteers provide non-denominational spiritual support to patients, residents, and families. Responsibilities include listening, praying if requested, contacting a clergy member if needed, or simply visiting with someone in need of company. Volunteers meet once a month and require training classes and shadowing before working on their own.
Merlin’s Magic Pet Partners is a partnership between Pet Partners and Teton County PAL. Dogs must be registered and certified with petpartners.org . Evaluations are held as needed. PP Teams visit patients in the hospital and offer a wagging tail as comfort.
St. John’s also provides an opportunity for young people to get involved. “Volunteens,” students age 13 to 17, serve in many areas of the hospital helping to comfort patients (download the Volunteens Application Form here ).
Requirements for volunteering include: completing an application, personal interview, lab work (tb test, MMR, drug screen, flu shot) background check, general orientation to hospital procedures, training in your interest area, and a commitment to serving a full calendar year.
The rewards are many!
