VOLUNTEER MISSION STATEMENT The primary purpose of Volunteer Services of Mercy Healthcare Sacramento is to provide quality volunteer services to patients, staff, physicians, families, visitors, and others in a manner that is compassionate and respectful.
Volunteers are important members of the hospital health care team. While they never displace professional or non-professional staff, they play an important role in supplementing the work of the hospital personnel. Volunteers also assume the responsibility of being conscientious, dependable, and represent the hospital to the community in a favorable manner. Working as a volunteer will be to your advantage, as well as to the advantage of those you may encounter. A little of yourself will be given for the benefits of others; they will learn that a volunteer's service can be fun and rewarding. We would like to extend our sincere welcome to you and our appreciation for giving of yourself, your time and talents to others at Mercy General Hospital. Volunteering in a hospital can also help you decide on a specific area of medicine you may wish to persue or give you extra points on nursing school applications.
