Dear Mr. Mendoza:
Upon learning of your need for an enthusiastic and dedicated Hospital Volunteer to provide key support at Centennial Medical Center, I hastened to submit my resume for your consideration. As an organized and personable individual with previous experience in the medical / healthcare sector, we have reason to talk.
After retiring from my 25-year career in health administration and information management last June, I amassed considerable volunteer experience with the Logan Women’s Health Institute in Tuscaloosa; I am now excited to accept a new volunteer opportunity and look forward to establishing a lasting commitment to Centennial by providing comprehensive administrative and patient support. From updating patient charts and answering reception desk calls to directing patients to specific medical units and restocking supplies, I am prepared to put my transferable skill set and my dedication to healthcare excellence to your facility’s benefit.
Highlights of my volunteer-based experience in the healthcare field include the following:
Volunteering at the Logan Women’s Health Institute up to 30 hours each week, assisting in areas such as patient transportation/escorts, new volunteer training, visitor management, fundraising efforts, and front desk staffing.
Demonstrating a lifelong commitment to the medical field, with a successful career in health administration coupled with ongoing professional training/development and a degree in Health Information Management.
Utilizing my warm and friendly demeanor to establish compassionate and trusting relationships.
Quickly and skillfully mastering new technologies and communication tools.
Possessing excellent time management, problem solving, and interpersonal abilities.
The combination of my dedication to the medical industry and my organized, professional demeanor continues to define my abilities. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your needs and how my talents can benefit Centennial Medical Center in this volunteer role.
