St. Rita's Volunteer / Auxiliary Resources
St. Rita's is blessed to have a dedicated corps of volunteers. With a legacy of caring, volunteers have been a part of St. Rita's since it opened its doors in 1918. Today, there are approximately 625 volunteers (400+ adults, 70 college students and 150 teens) giving their time and talents in over 90 areas of the Medical Center.
A wide range of volunteer assignments are available to suit your individual needs, interests, skills, career goals, and time schedule. Opportunities such as transporting patients in wheelchairs, escorting patients and visitors, and delivering mail and flowers to patients are just a few of the many services given by our active volunteers. There are also many less strenuous opportunities such as staffing one of the many information desks on the main campus, as well as the Putnam County and Delphos Ambulatory Care Centers. Some of the "Special Programs" offered are: Eucharistic Ministers, Patient Pride Program, Emergency Department Web/Social Media and Hospice Program.
St. Rita’s Volunteer / Auxiliary operates the Gift Shop in the main lobby in addition to various fundraising events such as craft bazaars and jewelry sales. Their events financially support programs and services throughout the Medical Center. This is an active, innovative group that is always looking for new members with creative ideas.
