What do VolunTEENs do?
The VolunTEENs assist with the Take A Stand Against Child Abuse lemonade stands for the Phelps County Child Advocacy Network (PCCAN); they provide breaks for many of the PCRMC volunteers who work in the nursing dispatch areas, the Medical Office Building and the Main and North entrances; and they operate the hospitality cart throughout the hospital. VolunTEENs also work clerical positions, help out in The Lily Pad gift shop or volunteer in the hospital cafeteria.
VolunTEENs Learn about Healthcare Careers
Many departments at PCRMC provide tours and presentations for the VolunTEENs to further acquaint them with the hospital’s daily operations and services. The Surgery Department, Human Resources, Nurse Recruitment, Medical Imaging, Obstetrics, Marketing, Mid-Missouri AHEC, Sleep Lab, Laboratory, Pastoral Care (Organ Donation), Organizational Development, Home Health and Auxiliary & Volunteer Services (Retail Marketing) offer information to familiarize the VolunTEENs with the specialized functions each department performs for the betterment of patients and the hospital as a whole.
