Want to get your steps in on a regular basis? Cold weather is coming and if you're interested in getting your step on .,.. we need YOU to come be a volunteer with our Patient Transport department. What will you be doing? Transporting, veterans, guests and even staff by wheelchair to their appointments or place of work.
What are we looking for? You to be physically fit to walk, stand and sit for periods of time. The willingness to help veterans and guests and always greet everyone with a smile. You will have an opportunity to speak with the veterans while wheeling them to their appointments. You'll even be taught how to maneuver a gurney to aid our inpatient areas on occasion and take veterans to inpatient appointments.
Don't spend your time mall walking this winter ... spent your time at the VA serving our Nation's Heroes!
