Patient and Family Partnership Council

This council is comprised of medical center staff and former patients, or caregivers of former patients. Its purpose is to serve in an advisory capacity to assist Maury Regional as we strive to achieve extraordinary outcomes and to constantly improve our clinical excellence and compassionate care. To learn more, click here.

Compassionate Hearts

Compassionate Hearts is a program designed to support the spiritual and emotional needs of our patients and their family members. Volunteer Services will coordinate and train volunteers to work with members of nursing, pastoral care and social services staff. These volunteers will visit critically ill patients who have no local family and friends and provide respite to family members who need to leave a patient's bedside. For more information about the program or becoming a volunteer, please contact Volunteer Services at 931.380.4047.

MASH Student Program

The Maury Academy for Students in Health (MASH) Program is a two-week health careers summer camp for high school students interested in learning about health professions. Exposure to different areas of medicine and health-related professions is an integral part of the MASH experience. Students interact with experts such as physicians, registered nurses, medical technologists, radiologic technologists, respiratory therapists and pharmacists. During the program, students learn about physical assessment, casting, suturing, medical terminology and much more. Considerations will be made for those interested in job shadowing after the program. Applicants must be entering their junior or senior year in high school, completed one biology class, demonstrate scholastic ability and critical thinking skills and provide recommendations into the program from school personnel. Students must also complete an essay as part of the application process. Applications are accepted during the month of February.

Music Program

The purpose of this program is to provide appropriate, soothing music to our patients and visitors in an effort to help ease their stress and anxiety during their time in the hospital. Instruments used must be conducive to a health care setting. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for those with a musical talent they would like to share, and it is especially designed for those who work and would like to share their talents, but only have a limited time in which to offer their services. Hours can be very flexible for those who are interested.

Pet Therapy

Pet therapy is a program developed by the Maury Regional Volunteer Services Department to brighten the stay of patients in our care. Studies have shown that physical contact with a pet can lower anxiety, reduce high blood pressure and, in some cases, cause the release of endorphins, chemicals in the body that help to reduce the pain response. For more information about the program, becoming a volunteer or arranging a pet visit, please contact Volunteer Services at 931.380.4047.

Care-A-Van Shuttle

The volunteers provide free shuttle transportation to any building or parking area on the medical center campus. The shuttle runs Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and makes regular stops in front of all major entrances. The driver may be contacted by dialing 931.698.5928.
