Osceola Medical Center is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization. As such, many opportunities exist for community members to give or volunteer. Your efforts help provide funds for programs, equipment and scholarships, and go a long way toward helping provide the high-level care our community expects. It’s community efforts like these that make so many people refer to us as “my OMC.”
Osceola Community Health Foundation
OCHF was founded in 2001 as a subsidiary of OMC. The not-for-profit foundation works to identify needs and provide health-related services to residents of our community. Using philanthropic assistance, we strive to provide support for the medical center and implement health-related programs that benefit all age groups. The foundation receives administrative support from OMC, and is governed by a voluntary board of directors consisting of respected community members.

We invite you to consider volunteering at Osceola Medical Center. Our opportunities provide a great way to help people and give back to our community. Our most common opportunities involve helping at our gift shop – Prairie Gifts – and at the Concierge’s Desk. We also have opportunities in our John Simenstad Surgery Center and assisting with annual events such as our Healthy Heart 5K Run and Flu Clinics. Most opportunities are available Monday through Friday during normal business hours. If you are interested in volunteering at OMC or would like information, contact Sara Cutts, Guest Services manager, directly at 715-294-5757.
Partners of OMC
The Partners of Osceola Medical Center began in 1984 as OMC’s Auxiliary when a small group of people came together to create an innovative infant car seat program for new babies leaving the hospital. Since then, the group has grown to more than 65 members and has been instrumental in helping maintain quality care for OMC’s patients.
Through its work, Partners has provided OMC with services and equipment, such as trauma carts, fetal monitors, blood pressure monitors and warming blankets.
One of the Partners’ popular activities is its annual, heartwarming tradition for many area families, the “Love Light Tree”. This event allows you to dedicate a light in honor or in memory of someone. Lighted evergreens will grace OMC’s front entrance throughout the holiday season.

The Partners established Prairie Gifts at Osceola Medical Center. Staffed by volunteers, this gift shop provides merchandise to meet the needs of staff, patients and visitors while generating revenue to support equipment and program needs of the medical center.
The Partners Scholarship for Continuing Education provides financial assistance for an adult student beginning or continuing education in a medical-related field of study. The Partners High School Scholarship provides financial assistance for education beyond high school for a student pursuing a medical-related field degree.
