Left Shadow Right Shadow



Skiff Medical Center is fortunate to have scores of dedicated volunteers who volunteer their time, talent or resources to help the hospital. Volunteers may work from just a few hours a month to several days or evenings a week, depending on their availability.

Skiff Auxiliary

The hospital's Auxiliary offers many opportunities for service. Some volunteers work directly with patients, while some choose to work behind the scenes. Some bring their specially screened dogs to provide animal-assisted therapy. The Ambassador volunteers enjoy greeting patients at the front door and answering questions from the public. Still others prefer clerical duties and spend their time answering phones or scheduling patients. Volunteers also assist in fundraising by staffing the Skiff Auxiliary Gift Shop, or helping with the Chair-ries Jubilee event. They also assist with blood drives, health fairs, addressing and mailing. Learn more by visiting our Auxiliary web page.

To learn more, contact Terri Hayden at (641) 791-4350 or thayden@skiffmed.com.

Skiff Hospice

Another special way to serve is through Skiff Hospice. Some volunteers are trained to work one-on-one with terminally ill patients and family members. Others would rather help with mailings, writing thank-you cards to donors, or other administrative tasks.

To learn more, call (641) 787-3074.

Jasper County Ride

Do you like to help people in need? Become a volunteer driver for Jasper County Ride, a service of Skiff Medical Center. Volunteer drivers provide rides to the doctor's office or pharmacy to Jasper County residents who are older than 65, or disabled, or low income. Becoming a volunteer driver is easy, enjoyable and rewarding. And best of all, it helps someone who needs it.

If you'd like to be a volunteer driver or learn more, contact Terri Hayden at (641) 791-4350 or thayden@skiffmed.com.

Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP)

Volunteers for SHIIP provide free, unbiased counseling for Jasper County residents who receive Medicare or Medicaid coverage. They meet one-on-one with clients, helping them make decisions about their coverage. SHIIP volunteers have helped hundreds of Medicare recipients choose an approprite Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.

If you would like to volunteer for SHIIP, please call (641) 791-4899.
