At Liberty Hospital, about 175 individuals donate their time and talents to the organization. They fill vital roles, including staffing the hospital gift shop, giving directions to patients and visitors at the information desk and performing clerical duties. In addition to meeting some outstanding people, our volunteers receive a free meal in the cafeteria for each shift they work. They also participate in the annual volunteer Christmas party, hospital events and a special volunteer awards banquet.
To volunteer, you must be 18 or older and out of high school. You must also become a member of the hospital’s auxiliary. Click on the opportunities in the list below to see descriptions.

Helping to direct patients and deliver gifts to patients and doctors alike, they both work at the information desk, while Ewing also helps in patient registration. “We enjoy meeting and helping people,” Myra said. “We like to give them a smile and let them know we’re here to help.” -Jillian Lappin, NCAPS Marketing Intern.
Meet Jim Svodoba
For the past three years, Jim Svoboda has been a volunteer at Liberty Hospital. Working from the information desk, surgery waiting room or patient registration, Jim makes patients and guests feel welcome. “It’s about trying to put yourself in the patient’s shoes, and help them find their way through the hospital because they don’t visit the hospital very often,” he says.
Jim moved to Platte County in 1979. He worked for Quaker Oats and Tyson. Now retired, Jim makes his way to Liberty Hospital to serve our community. His children were born in this hospital, and he wants to give back to the people here. When his isn’t volunteering here, Jim enjoys visiting car shows. —Payton Smith, NCAPS Marketing Intern
