Volunteer Opportunities

Serving Their Community

Make a difference in our community: Volunteer at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County.

Volunteering at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County is a terrific way to express your appreciation for our community. Whether you are a “people person” or you prefer to make a difference behind the scenes, we can find a volunteer opportunity that fits your talents and personality.

It is the mission of our volunteers to provide the best possible support and comfort for our patients, their families and visitors. MHSC volunteers provide a variety of services including operating the Forget-Me-Not Gift Shop, the Comfort Cart, inter-office mail delivery, clerical duties, and more.

Our volunteer program consists of more than 40 people, ranging in age from 14 to 95, serving in many different areas within the hospital. They are high school and college students, retirees and employed professionals from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. No matter what you do, or where you are in life, you can find a way to help your local hospital and make new friends along the way.

Volunteer applications are available at the information desk in the hospital’s main lobby. Junior applications are only available after May 1 for the summer program.

If you have questions or need additional information, please email jgale@sweetwatermemorial.com or call (307) 352-8418.

MHSC Volunteer Chaplaincy Program

In partnership with area clergy, Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County has created an on-call Chaplain program. At MHSC, we believe it is important to offer spiritual care as a valued added service.

Volunteer Chaplains have a weekly call rotation and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This service is available to patients and family members.

To be considered for our Volunteer Chaplain Program, applicants must:

  • Be ordained

  • Be at least 18 years of age.

  • Complete and submit an application.

  • Be approved for service by the Volunteer Services Director and MHSC Lead Chaplain.
