- Escort patients and visitors to the appropriate location within the medical center.
- Perform clerical duties.
PSMC's Dog Therapy Program
Patients and employees alike delight in PSMC’s Dog Therapy team visits. Therapy dog teams consisting of a dog and its human are certified by either Therapy Dog International or the Alliance of Therapy Dogs and have completed the PSMC volunteer onboarding process. Benefits from a dog visit may include lower blood pressure, less stress, distraction from pain and an increased sense of well-being. Although most patients enjoy a visit, those who wish to pass may opt out.
