Meet Lisa Johnson, WMC's new volunteer coordinator
By Lisa Johnson Jan 19, 2018
Volunteer efforts are vital in supporting Wyoming Medical Center’s mission, vision and values.
Our volunteers offer a compassionate presence to our patients, families and visitors while helping hospital staff in a variety of ways. They contribute thousands of hours of service to the hospital each year while donating needed equipment directly to hospital floors.
As the new volunteer coordinator for Wyoming Medical Center, it is a privilege to work alongside these dedicated volunteers, many of whom have been here 20 years or more.
Here at the region's largest non-profit hospital, there are many volunteer opportunities. We do our best to place volunteers in positions that utilize their skills, experience and interests. My goals as coordinator include recruiting volunteers of various ages, expanding volunteer opportunities to include weekends and evenings, and promoting volunteers with the Wyoming Medical Center Junior Volunteer Program to serve on a year round basis.
Volunteer management is a passion of mine. Previously, I was a director for two Retired and Senior Volunteer Programs through the Corporation for National and Community Service, managing volunteers in multi-county regions.
Wyoming Medical Center is always looking for new volunteers, and we have opportunities available for both adults and students ages 16 and older.
Since 1953, hospital volunteers have served patients and staff through more than 20 service areas. They escorts patients and families through the hospital, work in the volunteer-owned Cottage Gift Shop, man information desks, deliver flowers, help our chaplains and much more. Wyoming Medical Center volunteers must complete the application, pass background and drug tests and go through our orientation process.
Contact me if you have questions or want to get started. I look forward to meeting you!
