Marian Regional Medical Center to Hold Open House for Potential Volunteers

Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC), together with Arroyo Grande Community Hospital and French Hospital Medical Center, are Dignity Health Central Coast hospitals, invites the community to a volunteer-services open house to learn about the diverse volunteering opportunities available.  

The open house event will be held Thursday, Oct. 1 at 4 p.m. in the MRMC Conference Center at the corner of Church and Palisades in Santa Maria.

MRMC is currently seeking friendly and dependable volunteers to dedicate their time, talents and resources to make a difference in the lives of those it serves.

Volunteers are needed for Monday through Friday daytime shifts and evening and weekend services; most shifts are four hours long.

Each of our volunteers provide valuable service and support in many areas, such as the following:

» Hospitality and guest services

» Patient and family escorts

» Pet therapy

» Hospice

» Spiritual care 

Volunteers also work in the gift shop and Mission Hope Cancer Center.

Since the inception of the new facility in 2012, the number of volunteers has increased, as has the need for additional volunteers to join our program.  

Marian volunteers bring a wide variety of education and experience that support a diversity of services, and they are integral component of the day-to-day operations.

Marian now has upwards of 500 adults and teens volunteering more than 84,000 hours annually.

For questions about the event, or if you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact the Marian Volunteer Services Office at 805.739.3520.

— Sara San Juan is a marketing specialist at Marian Regional Medical Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
