The health care environment can be overwhelming and confusing. Volunteer ambassadors can help reduce anxiety by offering compassionate support to patients and families in many areas of the hospital. Some of our volunteer ambassadors are the face of our hospital as people arrive for care; others provide information when someone is looking for a hospitalized loved one. Many other volunteer ambassadors serve our patients and the community in our outpatient offices or on our clinical care units.

A volunteer ambassador’s role may vary depending upon the areas supported. Transport training is required for most of these positions.

Nursing Services

Volunteers can also provide customer service and support to patients and staff on our busy nursing care units. While volunteers cannot provide care to patients, they can extend compassion and assistance to ensure staff, patients and family members feel supported.

All volunteers in this role will need to complete transport training to be able to move patients around the facility and connect them with services and loved ones. Additional guidance will be provided on the units when you begin. Placement in a specific department will be determined by a number of factors, including your availability.

If you would like to become a volunteer for one of our ambassador or nursing services roles, please complete a Volunteer Application. Your application will be reviewed by our program managers. If your application reflects the needs of one of our open positions, you will be invited to a group interview.

We are currently supporting the new volunteers we recruited for these positions to meet our present needs. We will update details here as we open up recruitment for either or both of these positions in the future.
