CCMH is celebrating our "Rock Stars of healthcare”-that’s the theme for this year’s National Hospital Week, May 10-16, 2015. It celebrates the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication. This is the annual opportunity to thank the dedicated individuals—physicians, therapist, technologist, nurses, support staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more—for their commitment. It’s also a great time for us to tell the hospital story and publicly reinforce the vital role hospitals play in their community’s overall health, which extends far beyond strictly providing medical care.

Remember the days of the Candy Stripers? As a Volunteer in a hospital, you support the patient, their family, visitors, and the entire healthcare team—doctors, nurses, therapist, technologist, case managers, housekeepers, nutrition services, etc. Volunteers are the vital link in keeping the high tech care we strive to provide, professional and personal. Your duties may consist of reading to patients, playing cards, providing directions to guests, delivering supplies, and many other opportunities that fit your talents.
Hospitals provide care to patients. That sounds simple enough. But it is so much more than a transaction between a patient and their healthcare providers. To promote true health and well being, a patient must be treated as a whole person. Volunteers help that process everyday!
Volunteering at Carroll County Memorial Hospital is simple. CCMH has programs for adults and teens. To start, complete a Volunteer Application or call the 660-542-1695 to get an application. Volunteer Services will match your abilities and interests with a need in the facility. Remember… there is no greater gift, than the gift of time.
