Health Matters

Be a volunteer!

Written by Healthy Living

Since 1963, volunteers have served at Leesburg Regional Medical Center (LRMC), providing more than 3 million hours of service. These special helpers, who are dedicated to serving in any way they can, have a crucial impact on patients and the entire hospital.

“Most volunteers say there is nothing better than knowing they have helped someone in need,” says Jennifer woods, volunteer coordinator at LRMC. “It doesn’t matter if a volunteer commits to an hour or four hours; it makes a difference to the ones who are being helped.”

LRMC needs more volunteers to join its auxiliary now. Not only is this a great way for volunteers to meet new people and establish lasting friendships, they can also learn new skills. There is an immediate need for help at the front lobby information desks, in the gift shop, as a courtesy shuttle driver, in the emergency room, the thrift shop, as patient representatives, and more.

Volunteers should be friendly, personable, and at-ease interacting with the public. For additional information, stop by the West Lobby of LRMC at 600 E. Dixie Ave. in Leesburg or contact the volunteer coordinator at 352.323.5062 or email jwoods@centflhealth.org.
