Patient Escort: Would you like to volunteer and exercise at the same time? You can easily achieve the recommended 10,000 steps a day by volunteering as a patient escort. Many departments utilize patient escorts to transport patients to and from different areas throughout the medical center. Not only will be helping the department but you will be able to help make our patient stay even better. We invite you to volunteer, wear your pedometer and find out how many steps and good feelings from helping others you can acquire. Ability to stand and/or walk for significant periods of time, good customer service skills and the ability to push a patient in a wheelchair are a must!

Medical Center and Medical Plaza Information Desk Receptionist – West
Expand your current customer service and computer skills while assisting patients and visitors who enter Bryan Medical Center find their desired destination. We are looking for volunteers who can use their experience in customer service, computers, telephones, and problem-solving at the information desk. Patient and visitor needs are determined using various tools available at the desk including a computer and directory. Duties include greeting individuals in person and on the telephone, providing information and directions, finding test and procedure check-in locations via computer, and providing medical emergency escort or transport to the Emergency Room. This is an exciting, sometimes fast-paced opportunity where you can learn many new things as well.

Customer Care Car Driver: Do you driving? Do you enjoy helping people? How about doing both of them at the same time? Bryan is looking for volunteers to drive a small electric car at Bryan Medical Center, Bryan East Campus. The car will circulate between the parking lot and the front entrances providing rides for patients and visitors to and from their vehicle.

New applicants are accepted during the months of September, January, and May only. Thanks so much!
