Volunteer Opportunities

Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal is always look­ing for new vol­un­teers to help us serve patients in our com­mu­ni­ty. Our vol­un­teer pro­gram allows vol­un­teers to choose a sched­ule that works for them to offer their time to Ivin­son. Vol­un­teers can assist in a num­ber of areas through­out the hos­pi­tal, includ­ing the following:

  • Admit­ting
    Assist patients with greet­ing and wayfind­ing at our new Med­ical Offices at Ivinson.
  • Can­cer Cen­ter
    Offer greet­ing and wayfind­ing to patients and fam­i­lies as well as assis­tance to patients receiv­ing treat­ment at our Can­cer Center.
  • Extend­ed Care
    Offer your tal­ents and ser­vices to Extend­ed Care patients, whether you play an instru­ment, sing, or just want to spend time with our patients in this department.
  • Fam­i­ly Care Unit
    Assist staff with baby hear­ing screens and pro­vide cus­tomer ser­vice to Fam­i­ly Care Unit patients and their families.
  • Medical/​Surgical Unit
    Assist with any of the sev­er­al vol­un­teer oppor­tu­ni­ties at our Medical/​Surgical Unit, includ­ing offer­ing patient sup­port by read­ing, doing nails, and assist­ing with cler­i­cal work; pro­vid­ing one-on-one sup­port to patients who need con­stant super­vi­sion; and spend­ing time with patients who are in their final days, ensur­ing that they have a friend to talk to while they are at the hospital.
  • Patient Art Pro­gram
    Plan and lead an art activ­i­ty for patients using mate­ri­als and lessons pro­vid­ed by the Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion. Help patients express them­selves cre­ative­ly and cope with the issues that they face at the hos­pi­tal. Patient art pro­gram vol­un­teers may work with patients in either Dial­y­sis or Extend­ed Care.
  • Aux­il­iary Vol­un­teer Pro­gram
    Join a com­mu­ni­ty of hos­pi­tal vol­un­teers that serve in depart­ments through­out the hos­pi­tal as well as work togeth­er to raise funds to sup­port Ivin­son. Our aux­il­iary vol­un­teers are a ded­i­cat­ed group that meets through­out the year to help improve our hos­pi­tal through vol­un­teer ser­vice and fundrais­ing. Areas of vol­un­teer­ing include the Pinecone Gift Shop, Phar­ma­cy, the Can­cer Cen­ter, and oth­er IMH departments. 

We are cur­rent­ly revamp­ing our vol­un­teer pro­gram so please check back to fill out an updat­ed appli­ca­tion soon!
