We are pleased to support a number of programs that provide opportunities to serve as volunteer in various capacities at any Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District location.
However, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District is placing its Volunteer Program on hold until further notice. Effective immediately, PIONEERS MEMORIAL is asking all active volunteers to remain at home. Additionally, PMHD will not be accepting new volunteer applications. As soon as it is deemed safe to do so, we will gladly bring back the Volunteer Program to PMHD.
