Volunteers are needed for the brand new state of the art Baton Rouge General - Ascension, a neighborhood hospital in Prairieville, LA. The hospital site is located at Highway 73 and Interstate 10. The 60,000 square foot facility includes a 10-bed inpatient hospital, an outpatient lab, imaging/radiology, a 14-bed emergency room area, as well as physician practices and office space.
Volunteers are needed to greet and direct visitors and patients. This volunteer position will require standing, sitting, walking, customer service, great communication skills and prefer someone with knowledge/experience with computers/Ipads. The volunteer must be able to interact with patients who are coming in to be treated in the Emergency Department.
Volunteers at Baton Rouge General are committed to supporting patients and families through compassionate service and care. From offering a warm smile and cheerful "hello" to visitors, to helping someone find the perfect gift for a loved one, to assisting patients and families in Surgery Waiting Area, our volunteers are dedicated to service excellence. Our volunteers are an essential part of our Community of Caring, impacting so many of the General's patients, visitors, friends, doctors, nurses and staff. They provide the little extras that help to create that special experience people have come to know and love at the General.
We are a not for profit hospital which is community owned. Our volunteers have an Auxiliary which returns all profits from fundraisers and the gift shops to the hospital at year-end to purchase medical equipment, security equipment, and interior updates.
