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 winter volunteer needs.These priorities are based on the needs of our patients, staff and visitors. Our current 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 Outpatient Oncology Clinic.
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. It is an active position, so our ambassadors are on their feet for 3-4 hours at a time.
