Volunteers wanted at Sutter Lakeside Hospital

LAKEPORT, Calif. – Sutter Lakeside Hospital Auxiliary is looking for volunteers for an exciting new position in the Intensive Care Unit.

The position is open to anyone who wants to help and is available to volunteer at least once a week during flexible hours.

ICU volunteers help answer phones, open doors and check in patient visitors.

“We love our volunteers,” said Pauline Orr, RN, director of ICU, Med/Surg and Outpatient Care. “We are a busy four bed ICU and admit high volumes of patients each month. ICU volunteers are an integral part of the team by supporting our dedicated staff.”

“I am very proud of what the ICU nurses are capable of doing, and know that extra volunteer support will make a big difference for the efficiency and wellbeing of the nursing staff,” said Dr. Kosolcharoen, medical director, ICU.

“The caliber of Sutter Lakeside volunteers, and their contributions, will help build a team that will continue to make Sutter proud for many years to come,” said Orr.

Please consider this exciting opportunity to support critically ill patients and their caretakers, or consider volunteering for one of the many other opportunities within the Auxiliary.

Sutter Lakeside Auxiliary volunteers manage and staff the hospital gift shop at the hospital. The gift shop funds support hospital programs, services and equipment.

The most recent purchase includes a 3D/4D ultrasound machine and a special scale for disabled patients in the clinics.

The Auxiliary has also contributed to the hospital’s 3D mammography machine, anesthesia machines for surgery, an ultrasound for cardiology and patient lounge area furniture.

Other Auxiliary opportunities include greeting patients at the information desk (Tuesday mornings), or volunteering in the Emergency Department or Family Birth Center.

In the month of March alone, the Auxiliary’s 20 volunteers contributed more than 540 hours.

Volunteers must be over the age of 18 and be willing to commit to at least one year of service.
