BRMH Volunteens assist in greeting and escorting patients and visitors, delivering mail, staffing the information desk, and assisting departments with various duties. 

One benefit of the Volunteen Program is "shadowing," in which Volunteens have the opportunity to spend time with someone in a particular profession they wish to explore. Examples of areas students can shadow include but are not limited to: nursing, laboratory, rehab therapy, dietary, and radiology. 

The objectives of the Volunteen Program are to broaden students' abilities to interact with other people in a professional environment; learn to handle responsibilities; experience the satisfaction of helping others; gain a sense of self-worth and self-esteem; build confidence; get an inside look at health careers; learn work ethics; and develop work skills.

The Volunteen program is sponsored by the Volunteers of BRMH. For more information about the program, contact Sarah Osegard at or call 715-284-3606.
