ROCKWALL – Outgoing high school students 16 and older are invited by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall to apply for its new summer volunteer program, which will provide opportunities to learn about a variety of hospital-related service lines.
According to Jacqueline Camp, Director of Patient Experience, student volunteers will be assigned to work in patient care departments, as well as in support services. Texas Health Rockwall will make every effort to honor a requested area but cannot guarantee placement in a specific location. She encourages any student with an interest in learning more about the healthcare field or considering a career in healthcare to apply.
“Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall, recognized as a Top 100 Hospital ‘Best Place to Work’ for the past two years, has many dedicated healthcare professionals eager to share their passion for patient care with those who volunteer,” she said. “Come learn with us. You might even find your passion.”
The student volunteer program runs from June 24 – July 31, with a mandatory orientation class on June 24. At the completion of the program, student volunteers will receive a certificate for documentation of service hours provided.
Applications are available at the front desk in the hospital lobby and must be submitted in completion by April 26. Interviews will begin in May and students selected for the program will be notified following completion of the interview process.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall, recognized with the Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, is the first full-service community hospital in Rockwall. The facility offers 50 inpatient beds for acute medical and surgical needs, advanced medical technology and comprehensive services focused on quality patient care and safety close to home.
The hospital was recognized as one of Modern Healthcare’s “Best Places to Work in Healthcare,” Becker’s Hospital Review’s “Great Places to Work in Healthcare” and home to several of DFW’s “Great 100 Nurses.”
