OMC to Host Volunteer Recruitment Fair January 31

Compassionate volunteers needed to serve in variety of roles

Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) will host a volunteer recruitment fair from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. January 31 at the OMC Parkway Center, 1211 Porter Wagoner Blvd., West Plains. Those interested in joining the OMC Volunteers are encouraged to drop in and learn more about the opportunities available.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet OMC volunteers and ask questions and discover the opportunities and benefits of volunteering. Necessary paperwork and screenings will be available at the fair to make it easy to join.

In addition, Jo Ann Harrell with OMC Home Care Transitions, will provide a feature presentation on the Medical Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care at 10 a.m. Paperwork assistance will be available for those interested in a Medical Durable Power of Attorney.

Volunteers are a vital part of OMC. In 2015 alone, 200 volunteers contributed over 28,413 hours to OMC, a contribution valued at more than $619,403.

“Volunteers play a very important role in the mission of Ozarks Medical Center,” said Volunteer Coordinator Dianne Hoover. “By volunteering within the health care system, individuals provide valuable support for the patients, visitors and staff of OMC. Our volunteers find their experience and the chance to give back to the community very rewarding.”

“Volunteers serve in a variety of roles throughout the health care system, assisting many different departments and gaining a variety of skills,” she said. “Whatever an individual interest might be, OMC will work with volunteers to find a schedule and position to suit them.”

Volunteer opportunities include positions at Guest Services, Outpatient Surgery, Clinic Office Support, Courtesy Shuttle, Emergency Department, Rehabilitation Services, West Plains Thrift Store, Mountain View Thrift Store, Gift Shop, Homecare Hospice, or as a volunteer Chaplain.

Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. Volunteers generally work in three-hour shifts.

The event will also include refreshments. For more information about the fair or volunteering at OMC, contact Dianne Hoover at 417-293-9969.
