Penn Highlands Clearfield809 Turnpike AvenueClearfield, PA16830
The Volunteer Center of Clearfield County currently has a need for volunteers at Penn Highlands Clearfield (Clearfield Hospital). The volunteer will be responsible for greeting people in the Emergency Department/Registration area of the hospital as they come in the door, helping to guide them to where they need to be, assist if a wheelchair is needed and visit the waiting area from time to time to see if anyone needs anything...even if just a listening ear or a warm smile. A desk will be provided near the registration entrance.
Additionally, you will be provided with the opportunity to be trained to assist with families during emergency alerts (cardiac/stroke/respiratory/trauma). It really will be an interesting opportunity!
