What volunteers do at Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin
Auxiliary volunteers provide a wide array of assistance to patients, including way-finding assistance, coffee and newspaper delivery, and fundraisers to help provide financial assistance to the medical center for new technology and equipment that aids in improving patient care.
Volunteer shifts are flexible to fit into busy schedules. All new volunteers attend a general orientation in addition to receiving specific training in their areas of service.
