We have friends of the hospital, foundation and hospice who donate their time and talents, whether it be hour, a month or something they do weekly. They donate their skills and their talents to support your medical center. They lend a hand wherever help is needed. They do everything from assisting departments with special projects, to making blankets for patients, to welcoming our visitors and answering questions they may have. Our volunteers are community minded people who make a difference by lending support to your health care community. Volunteers set an example for all of us…They work for the satisfaction of helping others and we greatly appreciate them. There are many areas in which you as a volunteer can make a difference!

“I have had postherpetic neuralgia (shingle pain) for the part 14 ½ years and have been on a pain medication. Dr. Kemp sent me to Andy Johnson, APRN, CRNA, he did a laser treatment on me which instantly reduced my pain and medication. It’s great to have found help for my pain close to home here at RC Hospital & Clinics.”

— Gladys Peterson, Bird Island

“I recently had surgery at RCH&C. I want to thank Dr. Linder for his quick diagnosis, Dr. Slater for his surgical expertise, the surgical team and everyone for the great care I received. Our community is so fortunate to have such a great healthcare center with such caring staff. Thank You!”
