Enloe Medical Center’s Volunteer Services will be accepting applications for its Patient Ambassador program until Feb. 23.

“Enloe is seeking compassionate, mature volunteers to visit patients at their bedside, provide emotional support, offer a listening ear and provide diversions, such as caring touch and access to healing arts,” according to a news release.

Patient Ambassador volunteer training takes several months, orientation and training begin April 11, and the second phase of training begins in September. Enloe requires a commitment of at least one year from volunteers.

“Patient Ambassadors are chosen for their personal attributes that align with Enloe’s mission,” the news release stated.
