Women & Infants' adult volunteer program is comprised of women and men who see the health care environment as a place where they can make a difference. Overall, our volunteers provide customer service either in an office setting or with patients and guests.
We are currently recruiting for late summer/ fall volunteer priorities. These priorities are based on the needs of our patients, staff and visitors and include:
Unit Volunteers: Limited placements are available for volunteers to provide customer service to patients and families on our inpatient units. Daytime shifts, only, are open at this time.
Candidates must have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be customer focused. Training in patient transport is required in advance of starting in this role.
Ambassadors: Our volunteer ambassadors serve to support a positive hospital experience for patients, their families and visitors in a number of areas. Key positions are in our hospital lobby, in our Outpatient Oncology Clinic and in our Infusion Center.
Early morning, mid day and late afternoon are available, depending upon location, for volunteers with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. A successful volunteer must be able to work as an independent member of an interdisciplinary team.
Some clerical/ administrative opportunities are also available in support of our clinical programs. Attendance at one of our Volunteer Interest Sessions will allow you to get more program information and outline next steps in the application process.
Volunteer Interest Sessions
If you wish to learn more about Women & Infants volunteer opportunities and requirements, we invite you to attend an informational one-hour "Interest Session". Registration is required.
In July, we will hold two Volunteer Interest Sessions. They are scheduled for:
Wednesday, July 8th at 1pm -Session is filled to capacity
Thursday, July 16th at 9:30am
You can register here for a session. When you register, we will send you a confirmation with details including directions and parking information to your email address. Check your spam if you do not receive the confirmation within an hour of a successful registration. Your telephone number will be used only if there are unexpected changes related to the session.
To complete your registration, submit an application prior to the Interest Session.
Candidates who follow up as outlined at the Interest Sessions will be invited for an interview. If a volunteer placement is determined, the health screening and orientation process will be reviewed at that time. Remember, per our program requirements, we expect people to make at least a four-month minimum commitment to service once they start. In some cases a longer minimum time commitment is required. The overall process is designed specifically to protect our patients and our valuable health care resources.
If a regular, ongoing commitment is more than you can do right now, there are other resources available to help you find a suitable volunteer position. you are looking for a volunteer opportunity prior to our fall/ winter timeframe, Volunteer Match, www.volunteermatch.org is a great resource for all kinds of information about volunteering and is helpful no matter what kind of organizational involvement you are considering.
