The need for low cost and free medical care is great in our area. Each month, the number of uninsured or under-insured individuals seeking medical care continues to grow. Our volunteers are vital in supporting Bethesda in our mission: to demonstrate the compassion of Christ by providing quality healthcare to those in need. Our services are based on the values of advocacy, compassion, dignity, faith, kindness, and stewardship. As a volunteer, your time and service gives hope to others during their time of need. Our volunteers are involved in many areas of service in the clinic:
Administrative – Join our front desk staff to greet patients, update patient information, make and confirm patient appointments.
Case Management & Social Work – Assist patients in navigating the application for government assistance programs, complete the eligibility assessment, or coordinate community resources.
Facilities Management – These services provide maintenance repairs, minor construction, or cleaning of the facilities.
Interpreters – Interpreters assist our staff and facilitate safe & comprehensive care by interpreting and translating written materials, when applicable.
Medical – For Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Nursing Assistants, Dietitians, and other trained professionals. As an affiliate with the Georgia Volunteer Health Care Provider program, all screened healthcare professionals can apply for free Sovereign Immunity and gain continuing education credits. Our physician volunteers see eligible patients at our clinic, while some specialty physicians serve as a referral source to provide care to our patients in their office. Are you a retired health care provider? Retired physicians can obtain a special license to practice through GVHCP.
Prayer Team – Church leaders or their representatives lead prayer and support groups, for patients, volunteers & staff.
Our volunteers give their time, their energy and their heart! We are grateful for their service. We look forward to working with you at Bethesda!
