DRHC Volunteers

Many Faces. Many Hands. Many Hearts.


Volunteers are essential members of our team at Essentia Health-Deer River.  DRHC Volunteers come from all walks of life. The diversity of our community is reflected in our volunteers who range from students to seasonal visitors to retirees. You will find volunteers on the front line and behind the scenes,  handling administrative functions, working in the gift shop or giving guidance at the welcome desk.

DRHC Volunteers quickly discover the rewards of giving their time.  By enriching others’ lives, you are enriching your own.  Volunteers benefit from helping others; you will learn new things, meet new people, and have fun.  We will match your talents and opportunities at our healthcare center to serve our facility and promote health and wellness in our community.
