In a health care world that’s becoming more and more complex, the basics of quality care still matter the most. Nothing is more elemental to great medical care than having talented and compassionate people. Our mission “to improve the health of our communities” hinges on our ability to find the best people to provide the finest in care, comfort and compassion.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIESFor more than 75 years, volunteers have played a vital role in the operations and delivery of care at Margaret Mary Community Hospital. There are many reasons why people volunteer here. Some are retirees who still want to make a valuable contribution of their time and talents. Some are pursuing health care careers and want some practical experience. Others are working adults who want to complement their paid jobs with a rewarding volunteer experience. But they all want to give back to the community and make a difference in the lives of others.How You Can Help
