Have a busy schedule? Want to volunteer, but can’t commit to coming in every week? Consider becoming a sub in our Surgery Family Waiting Room on the Minneapolis campus!
Surgery Family Waiting Room volunteers are a critical link in the chain of communication between Surgical Services staff and families while their children are in surgery. Volunteers provide a welcoming environment in the waiting area, communicate waiting area guidelines, and track families during their waiting period. Volunteers maintain professional and confidential communication with pre-op, operating room, recovery, and post-op staff to keep families updated during their child’s surgery. Volunteers also reconnect families with children upon their departure from the post-anesthesia care unit. FWR subs train during a designated shift and provide coverage when scheduled volunteers are unavailable.
Please contact Jenna at (612) 813-6148 if interested in making a difference in families’ surgery experiences!
