Spokane, Wash. - Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD) asks members of the community with healthcare experience to volunteer with the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) in order to help during the COVID-19 pandemic recovery efforts.

To support the healthcare community, the MRC of Eastern Washington is working to build its pool of healthcare volunteers. The MRC is recruiting healthcare professionals who are not currently employed or who have personal time available to help supplement the community’s already taxed healthcare workforce.

The MRC is recruiting healthcare professionals from various disciplines including the following:

  • Registered nurses
  • Nurse practitioners
  • CNAs and NACs
  • Physicians
  • Physicians assistants
  • Medical assistants
  • Mental health professionals

Volunteer roles may include providing general patient care and monitoring for non-COVID patients in the event of a surge or assisting with vaccination efforts in various capacities throughout the Spokane region.

MRC coordinators will position volunteers in settings that fall within their scope of practice and work to ensure that volunteers are placed in scenarios that they are comfortable with. Please note that the list above is not all inclusive—other healthcare disciplines will be considered depending on need. Additionally, most volunteer roles will not entail direct care for COVID-19 patients—many opportunities will be available, so please consider applying.
