Volunteering at WRHS

Volunteers at White River Medical Center and Stone County Medical Center give their time and use their individual talents to serve patients and visitors.   Opportunities to serve are as varied as the exceptional women and men who share our mission to improve community health and deliver excellent medical care.  

Volunteers may deliver mail to patients, direct visitors, staff information desks, assist with special events, and many other duties throughout the facility. At WRMC, volunteers provide a shuttle from the parking lots to hospital entrances.
