Kind words and personalized assistance go a long way in making our guests comfortable. The caring people who volunteer at UnityPoint Health - Meriter reflect the community we serve – women and men, teens, college students, working professionals and retirees. Meriter volunteers complement our dedicated team members by enhancing the quality of care provided to our patients.
Your gift to Volunteer Services provides ongoing support of activities benefiting our patients and families - from the purchase of yarn for homemade baby hats to kicking off new programs such as our Bedside DJ program which allows volunteers to provide music to our patients at their bedside. You can also direct your gift to our Scholarship Program through this fund which supports higher education for our local high schoolers planning a career in the healthcare field. Please make sure to denote this specific request on your donation if you would like to give specifically to the Scholarship program- otherwise your contribution will go to the department's greatest need.
