We love calling Mat-Su Regional Medical Center home. There are so many great people that walk through our doors and roam the hallways with us on a daily basis. If you feel the same way, whether you’re a patient past or present or a caregiver or family member, consider giving back through volunteering. Volunteers at the hospital help in a variety of areas from the emergency department to guiding tours at the annual Baby Fair. You’re sure to find something that interests you and you’ll feel great about it too! It never hurts to get to know the people at your local hospital and you’ll also qualify for hepatitis and influenza vaccinations as well as free educational classes through the medical center.
