Samaritan Albany General Hospital is looking to expand the volunteer program and add several names to its roster in 2020. Volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day operations of the hospital. They are the warm, welcoming faces visitors look forward to seeing throughout campus and provide uncanny support to doctors, nurses and staff.
There are a variety of opportunities to explore, from serving at the information desk, in the gift shop, emergency department and surgery center. There are volunteer opportunities seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. No experience is required, and training is provided.
“We are always in need of caring, compassionate volunteers to help us carry out our mission,” said Nichole Chamberlain, volunteer services coordinator. “The time spent at Samaritan is very rewarding and builds long-lasting relationships in the community.”
