The need is great and the rewards even greater. North Arkansas Regional Medical Center Volunteers provide an opportunity to serve, grow, learn, make new friends, exchange ideas, and feel needed.
NARMC has dozens of volunteers contributing thousands of hours each year. Our Volunteers staff is critical to the operation of our hospital and they can be seen at our Information Desks, operating Nightingale's Gift Shop and a Thrift Shop. In addition they work in
various hospital departments, including Claude Parrish Radiation Therapy Institute, surgical hostess, hospice, purchasing, medical records, and the Comfort Cart.
Proceeds from the Gift Shop and the Thrift Shop are donated to the hospital with funds used to purchase new medical equipment and to support projects such as the making of booties and turbans for our newborn infants, immunization records, scholarships, and health screenings.
To become a Volunteer, you need to call the Volunteer Office (870-414-4622) or email to request an application or you can print the Volunteer Application out and mail it on or bring it by. Once we receive
your application, we will call you to set up time for an interview. During the interview, we will discuss your interest in volunteering and what position and schedule would be best for you. At this time, we will also schedule you to attend the hospital safety and customer service orientation sessions and to have a TB skin test. Our Volunteers take pride in their work and are committed to be valuable members of the North Arkansas Regional Medical Center healthcare team.

The NARMC Junior Volunteer program is a summer volunteer program for students 15-18 years old with first consideration given to students in higher grades. The Junior Volunteer experience exposes participants to the wide range of hospital based medical careers while giving the participant a chance to share their time in a positive manner. Students commit to donating a minimum of 50 hours of their time over the length of the program. Under direct supervision of NARMC employees, Junior Volunteers perform assigned duties, which contribute to the overall quality of care and service to the hospital. There is no charge to participate. Six students will be selected. To learn more contact NARMC Volunteer Services.
