Mercer Health Volunteer
I believe the volunteer program truly improves the quality and success of both the hospital and the community. Dealing with people, particularly people in need, is a great thing.
- Chris Cornyn
Mercer Health Volunteer

I am a happy retiree from Mercer Health and witnessed volunteers helping in many ways and was always inspired by them. I still wanted to be a part of Mercer Health and being a volunteer was a good way of doing that.

- Diane Wellman
Former Mercer Health VolunTeen

As a VolunTeen, it was impactful for me to talk with different staff members about their jobs and positions, how they became interested in their field and what training was involved. As a VolunTeen, you truly become a part of the Mercer Health organization.
