Volunteer Services

Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center volunteers are a precious resource who come from all walks of life. They help patients, their families and our communities. Our volunteers’ hours and responsibilities are as varied as the volunteers themselves.

Our volunteer services has numerous service opportunities including the following:

  • Information Desk. Volunteers meet and greet the public, assist patients’ family and friends with room information, and deliver patient mail and newspapers. The information desk volunteer’s greeting provides hospital visitors with that important “first impression.” Being an information desk volunteer is very rewarding, and the only experience you need is a great big smile!
  • Waiting Rooms. Waiting room volunteers act as liaisons with hospital staff, keeping visitors and family members informed of our patients’ status. In addition, they provide hospitality to these visitors by serving refreshments as well as compassion and concern.
  • Gift Shop. Our gift shop is operated exclusively by volunteers. Profits fund scholarship programs, community health education activities and special services to enhance patient care and make stays more comfortable and enjoyable. Our gift shop volunteers provide sales assistance to our customers and participate in stocking and display activities.
  • Public Relations and Community Service Projects. Volunteers serve as hosts/hostesses at activities such as open house events and at blood drives, for example.
  • Administration Services. Volunteers provide office assistance when needed. Such duties may include filing, computer work, making photocopies and answering phones.
