VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System
Looking to interact with veterans while guiding them in the right direction? We are looking for a few volunteers to help in our Imaging service department. We are looking for volunteers with the following attributes:

Attention to detail
Consistent, reliable volunteer hours
Good customer service skills
Friendly, mature, positive and service oriented
Physical ability to walk and stand for long periods of time

What will you be doing? You'll be stationed at our check-in desk and will be escorting or transporting patients via wheelchair to their designated imaging appointment sub-waiting room and inform our technologist that the veteran has arrived. We are trying to maintain social distancing in our shared waiting room as well as free up space. You'll get a change for a quick visit while taking the veteran back!
