Adena Medical Center in Chillicothe needs a new batch of volunteers for this season.

Director of Volunteer Services Cindy Drumins says that the number of older volunteers decreases as the weather gets colder, and operations at the hospital are growing.  

According to Drumins, Adena has added a third information desk position and is looking for volunteers to fill a variety of positions including mail clerk, patient transport, and gift shop workers.

Drumins says the center needs volunteers to attend to patients in ways that physicians cannot.

"Volunteers have the luxury of more free time sometimes than staff members, and they can offer a listening ear or comforting words to patients or family members of a person that is going through a stressful time," says Cindy Drumins.

Adena Health System may need as many as 40 volunteers to fill one position.

Volunteers will receive on-the-job training.

Interested volunteers must be 18 years old and outgoing, dependable, and friendly.

To apply for a volunteer position, contact Drumins at (740) 779-7927.
