Volunteers at Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center are special people, called to this service of healing where the gift, the power and the worth of one person´s care for another is as important as the technology we use in the healing process.

About the Volunteer Program

Volunteers have been providing support for staff, patients and their families since 1968. Volunteering offers a sense of inner satisfaction that comes from sharing time, talent and love with others. It takes a special kind of person!
