Volunteers are extremely important to San Juan Regional Medical Center. Not only do they supplement and support our employees to deliver excellent patient care, they also do a great job with fund-raising. Proceeds from fund-raising, including sales from the gift market are used to purchase equipment for the hospital and provide educational assistance to people pursuing careers that will benefit San Juan Regional Medical Center. Volunteers are also eligible for educational assistance.
Most people volunteer because they want to help others. However, there are many personal benefits to volunteering, such as: feeling needed and valued, learning or developing skills, gaining experience, building self-confidence, improving health, socializing and meeting new people.
This is what our volunteers have accomplished in the past year. Join us!
