At Mercy Hospital & Medical Center, volunteers help us extend our tradition of caring for patients. Mercy volunteers are reliable, kind and enthusiastic people with a desire to help. You’ll see their smiling faces in our gift shop, greeting our many visitors, assisting our support staff as they provide service to our patients, and helping with special events.
