FREMONT – Fremont Health Medical Center offers a volunteer program for high school and college-age students.
According to the Volunteer Specialist at Fremont Health, Deb Hanson, volunteers are an essential part of Fremont Health, and help the staff to deliver compassionate high-quality care. She says there are many volunteer assignments students can take part in, but she enjoys have them at the Information desk.
“Volunteers, especially the high school and college-aged students, they can do almost any of our positions according to their time availability,” said Hanson. “I love having them at the Information Desk, either as an escort, a guide, or just giving a meeting and greeting is a big thing for our volunteers.”
Hanson says there are some requirements students must meet before they can volunteer at Fremont Health.
“Students do have to be at least fourteen. They do need to provide references. We do require Tuberculosis testing which we provide and pay for. They do participate in background checks. But we definitely have benefits for our student volunteers, and our other volunteers as well.”
