Volunteer

 

The volunteer experience at Community Healthcare Center is personalized to suit the personalities, time demands and needs of volunteers. Some people come to us seeking to make a difference in their community, others want to meet people and develop friendships, while others come seeking to enhance skills and gain experience in the healthcare industry. We understand that there is no “one size fits all” to volunteerism and work with volunteers to create an enjoyable, rewarding and productive experience.

No medical experience is required and volunteers come from all walks of life, including retirees, teachers, college students and homemakers to name a few. Since the program’s inception in January, 2007, dozens of volunteers have contributed tens of thousands of dollars of volunteer time. Whether it’s assembling new patient education packets in the client services department or ensuring the accuracy of patient information in the lab, Center volunteers get it done – and have fun doing it.

Community Healthcare Center honors its volunteers with an invitation to its exclusive Annual Meeting. The Volunteer of the Year is announced at the meeting and the contributions of all volunteers are celebrated.


Volunteer Expectations

Community Healthcare Center prides itself on developing a personalized volunteer experience to maximize the benefit to those donating their time. We strive to always be prepared for volunteers, create a relaxed environment, and provide the training necessary to accomplish all tasks.

As committed as we are to providing a positive experience, the Center expects the same commitment from volunteers. Volunteers perform valuable work which helps free up our staff to do what they do best – focus on patient care. Volunteers are expected to be dependable and appear for scheduled work shifts. Volunteers work no more than one, four hour shift per week.

Community Healthcare Center held its grand opening, ribbon cutting and dedication this morning for Community Healthcare Center at Zundy. The first community school-based health center is dedicated to Ralph O. Harvey III. Mr. Harvey has been an integral part of the federally qualified health center in north Texas since the beginning. Ralph Harvey, Ray Clymer, and Bob Gunn spearheaded the fundraising campaign in the early 90s to bring a health center to Wichita Falls, which was named Community Healthcare Center.

In 2019, Community Healthcare Center’s Chief Executive Officer, Allen Patterson, brought an idea to their board of directors to bring a school-based community health center to this area. The idea was then taken to Mr. Michael Kuhrt, WFISD Superintendent of Schools, and the WFISD School Board who approved the measure and donated the land to build the new clinic. Then, the campaign fundraising was then put into motion by Mr. Harvey who raised the entire amount to bring this health center site into reality. “His dedication to the health center and its success has been a blessing to our patients and our community since the beginning,” stated Allen Patterson.

The school-based community health center now houses two healthcare providers seeing patients Monday through Friday with seven support staff members. “The clinic is beautiful, and the patients love it,” stated April Williams, a Community Healthcare Center at Zundy Family Nurse Practitioner.
