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 fall volunteer priorities. These priorities are based on the needs of our patients, staff and visitors. Our 4 month minimum commitment would require participation at least through January 2016 for candidates starting in September or October.

Our present recruitment focus is: 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 and in our Infusion Center.
Morning, mid-day and late afternoon shifts are available, depending upon location, for volunteers with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Volunteers are often on their feet for up to 3 1/2 hours in this role. A successful volunteer must be able to work as an independent member of an interdisciplinary team.
Administrative and clerical volunteers: Some of our clinical departments are looking for volunteers to assist with administrative functions. Help is needed with organizing records and files, preparing informational materials, providing data entry and/or supporting communication with patients.
Unit Volunteers: Our patient care unit- based
volunteers serve the non-clinical needs of our patients and staff on our
patient care units. They enhance the patient experience by assisting
clinical staff, responding to non- medical requests and providing
transport services within the hospital and at discharge.
A few shifts remain in:
Ambulatory Surgery Unit from 11-2 or 2-5pm
