Volunteers

Our wonderful volunteers with a patientFrom ushering our guests onto the elevators, to tutoring patients at their bedside, volunteers are involved in countless aspects of our patients’ care, and they are vital to keeping the hospital the warm and friendly place that it is. They are also dedicated to our cause, providing over 60,000 hours of service each year.

We make sure that only the most qualified individuals are admitted into our program. Volunteers are carefully screened and placed into appropriate assignments. They also must adhere to standard policies and procedures. The placement process includes:

  • Criminal background check
  • Health & immunization record review
  • Individual interview
  • Orientation and extensive training for their role

This process is designed to ensure the safety and wellbeing of patients and families, as well as the confidence and success of volunteers.
