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:
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.
