Hospitals welcome individuals interested in volunteering. The volunteer department of the hospital works with each volunteer to match his or her interests and talents with the opportunities available. Volunteering in a hospital provides opportunities to broaden your interests, develop new skills and explore career options.

Volunteers work with patients, family members and professional staff in both in-patient and out-patient settings. Below is a sample of some of the volunteer opportunities available in a hospital:

  • Visiting with patients
  • Transporting patients throughout the hospital
  • Providing information at waiting areas and information desks
  • Delivering flowers
  • Staffing the gift shop or mobile gift cart
  • Clerical assistance
  • Direct health care as a student volunteer

If you are interested in volunteering at your local hospital, contact the volunteer department. Information about volunteer opportunities in other settings is also available.
