Who We Are
Belmond Medical Center is blessed to have many volunteers supporting
our organization in a variety of ways. These include, but are not
limited to, the Board of Trustees, the Belmond Community Hospital
Foundation, the Belmond Medical Center Auxiliary, the Belmond Volunteer Ambulance Service personnel, and
Board of Trustees – The BMC Board of Trustees is the ultimate
authority and decision-maker for BMC meeting on a monthly basis.
To serve the best interests of the facility, the board members
also serve on a variety of committees, Theses include the Finance
Committee, the Personnel Committee, and the Building and Grounds
Committee. These specific committees meet on an as needed basis.
Belmond Community Hospital
Foundation – The Belmond Community
Hospital Foundation is a separate entity designed to support the
overall needs of the medical community. The Foundation, in existence
since 1984 has provided support to BMC through funding capital
projects and assisting medical students with educational expenses.
Belmond Medical Center Auxiliary – The Auxiliary has many
active volunteers who donate many personal hours for the benefit
of BMC. Through it donations it provides equipment and supplies
to assist with patient care. Aside this support, the members provide
countless hours of time as hostesses for the outpatient clinics,
organizing and manning the local blood drives, assisting with cholesterol
screenings and flu shot clinics, visiting the patients, and supporting
students entering the medical field.
Belmond Volunteer Ambulance Service Personnel – Ambulance
service personnel consist of a number of dedicated people who give
to their time and talent as drivers for the ambulance or as Emergency
Medical Technicians. These personnel are ready at a moments notice
to provide assistance to persons with emergent medical needs. In
addition to emergency care, the ambulance service provides transfer
between facilities for those unable to travel by standard means.
Runners – Runners are average, everyday people willing to
give of their time to ‘run’ and get what the facility
may need and not have readily available on site. These needs may
include units of blood, medications that are not routinely stored
on site, and special intravenous fluids.
On behalf of the patients we serve, the staff at BMC truly appreciates
the support of these wonderful persons who are willing to provide.
If you wish to participate with any of these activities or donate
your time, please contact BMC and we will help to make the necessary
