volunteers1Volunteers are an essential part of Williamson Medical Center. More than 125 individuals a year give generously of their time, talents and concern. The Volunteers provide many services at the Medical Center including staffing the Williamson Tower information desk, delivering flowers and mail to patients, providing toys for children undergoing surgery, and operating The Gift Shoppe.

Listed below are some of the areas that volunteers serve:

  • Day Surgery liaison

  • Emergency Department waiting room

  • Gift Shoppe

  • Meeter/Greeter at entrances

  • Patient Registration escort

  • Physical Therapy

In addition to volunteering their time, the Williamson Medical Center Volunteer Auxiliary donates thousands of dollars annually to the Medical Center. The Auxiliary has provided specially equipped bicycles for the Emergency Medical Services Bike Medic Team, which provides medical support to more than 60 community events each year. The funds donated by the Auxiliary are raised through fundraisers, profits from the Auxiliary run Gift Shoppe, and the annual Tree of Life celebration held during the Christmas season. Williamson Medical Center has a junior volunteer program for ages 14-18. The volunteer experience for this group provides the opportunity to see first hand various career options in the health care setting while also providing services to patients and families. Young people between the ages of 14 and 18 can begin volunteering in January, June and September. To begin volunteering in January please submit your volunteer application by December 1, to start in June submit application by April 1, and to start in September submit application by July 1.
