PIH Reaches out to Retired Baby Boomers to Fill Volunteer Needs

Volunteering offers Boomers the opportunity to continue to use their professional skills for the benefit of their community hospital

According to United States Census data, everyday more than 10,000 Baby Boomers (those born from 1946-1964) reach retirement age. Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital (PIH) is looking to recruit at least 100 new retirees to their volunteer team.

"Our goal is to reinforce our volunteer base with people that have management experience, strong presentation skills and are enthusiastic about the work PIH is doing in the community," said Director of Senior and Volunteer Services Nancy Whyte. "As PIH expands in size and service capability, our volunteer base needs to increase to accommodate this growth."

The new Plaza Tower scheduled to open later this year will bring more opportunities for volunteers to put their talent to work. By sharing their time, experience, knowledge and skills, volunteers help PIH achieve its goal of providing superior healthcare to the community.

PIH volunteers interact with patients in a non-clinical manner, work alongside hospital staff and serve with other volunteers in a team atmosphere. The volunteer program offers scheduling flexibility, a variety of assignments and a chance to put current skills to use or acquire new ones.

Those considering giving back to the community and helping others should contact Cindy Daniels, volunteer services manager, at 562.698.0811 Ext. 12422
