A total of eight local high school students from Lawton High, Lawton Christian, Elgin and Apache volunteered to go through the decontamination process. They changed into shirts and shorts and then were decontaminated as if someone was actually exposed to a dangerous chemical. This gave the team members the opportunity to practice their decon skills and to practice with their equipment.
This month CCMH welcomes 50 Volunteens to our summer Volunteen program. Under the supervision of Michelle Callihan, Volunteer and Gift Shop Supervisor, these teens will offer much needed summer help in many departments. This program allows the teens to gain experience and knowledge from our great CCMH staff in many medical fields. The program allows the teens to discover areas of interest for many who will go on to medical school, and many other medical professions. You can identify our Volunteens by their royal blue shirts. If you see them, take a moment to introduce yourself and welcome them to CCMH!
On April 11, we had the opportunity to celebrate and appreciate the incredible CCMH Volunteers at the Hilton Garden Inn. Not only were 125 human volunteers honored, but five furry ones as well. The hospital would not be the caring, compassionate place of healing without these selfless people going above and beyond to help others. One night is not enough to thank our incredible volunteers!

Volunteens descended on CCMH to offer much needed summer volunteer help!
The teens are placed in numerous areas throughout the hospital, to include McMahon Tomlinson Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (MTN&RC).
“Volunteering at CCMH is an excellent opportunity for the teens to prepare for the future, especially if they are interested in going into the healthcare field,” said Michelle Callihan, Guest Relations and Volunteer Coordinator. “The program will expose them to many different areas throughout the hospital.”
You can identify our Volunteers by their royal blue shirts. If you see them, take a moment to introduce yourself and welcome them to CCMH! One day these students may be your co-workers!
“I applied to be a Volunteen so I could put the hours on my resume. But now I come almost every day. I love this place so much. I never feel like a volunteer. I feel like I’m one of the staff. I am honored to be in a program like this.” – Volunteen Shreya Nuguri
“Working in the nursing home is a wonderful experience. Being able to meet the residents and see how you have touched their hearts is amazing.” – Volunteen Ida Sukar
