Volunteers are asked to commit to one four-hour shift each week, although we will work with your schedule. Most opportunities are during the day on weekdays with limited evening and weekend placements available. Adult volunteers must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
There are many benefits to becoming a volunteer. In addition to helping others, volunteers have the opportunity to meet new friends, learn new skills, gain new insights and achieve a sense of accomplishment. Volunteers receive free parking, free coffee or tea during their shift, a free meal for every four-hour shift completed, free flu shots, free screening mammograms after completing one year of service, a special discount in the gift shop, invitations to special hospital and health screening events and free membership to the hospital workout center.
Volunteers are needed throughout the hospital. Opportunities include Hospital Gift Shop, Ambassadors, Information Desks, Popcorn Machine, Time Out, Pre-Admit Testing, Family Waiting Areas (SICU, MICU, Surgical Care, Center for Women and Children, and Emergency Room). Volunteers are also needed for special projects/events that arise throughout the Year.
