Mercy Medical Center is a community hospital located in downtown Baltimore where a diverse population is served. The campus includes a state-of-the-art, 300-bed patient tower for the many poor and marginalized residents of Baltimore City. Mercy Medical Center is one of the few hospitals in the nation with a Magnet designation. A Mercy Volunteer is needed as a nurse to work with a team of nurses in the Medical/Surgical Unit. Another Volunteer is needed as an occupational therapist to assist patients in regaining function with activities of daily living, occupational requirements, fine motor abilities and cognitive/perceptual skills.
This full-time volunteer position is available through Mercy Volunteer Corps. Mercy Volunteer Corps (MVC) is a full-time lay volunteer program offering placements in the continental U.S. and Guyana, South America. We invite women and men to compassionate service with people who are economically poor or marginalized in our society. MVC calls volunteers to service characterized by mutuality, respect, and compassion. Rather than “giving to, and doing for,” service with MVC is about the mutual empowerment of volunteers and clients, both giving and receiving, and advocating with instead of for the people they encounter daily in their service.
Volunteers have the opportunity to embrace service, a simple lifestyle in community, and personal and communal spiritual growth. Mercy Volunteers receive housing, medical insurance, transportation, food and personal stipends, professional development, retreat opportunities, and are eligible for student loan deferment.
This opportunity is open to ALL MAJORS. Service placements include positions in nursing, teaching, social work, health care administration, case management, and more.
