Volunteer Opportunities

We have a proud lega­cy of vol­un­teerism at Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal. We work close­ly with our clin­i­cal staff to make sure that our vol­un­teers will have mean­ing­ful expe­ri­ences and so we can bet­ter meet the needs of our patients and their fam­i­lies and our staff. We have found that com­mu­ni­ca­tion, con­sis­ten­cy and under­stand­ing the expec­ta­tions with­in each depart­ment are crit­i­cal for cre­at­ing a suc­cess­ful vol­un­teer program.

Our Aux­il­iary Vol­un­teer Orga­ni­za­tion was found­ed in 1951. Since then many hours have been donat­ed, includ­ing 3,338 hours in 2018. Addi­tion­al­ly, this group has assist­ed the hos­pi­tal in the pur­chase of major equip­ment through their var­i­ous fundrais­ing endeav­ors. We encour­age all vol­un­teers to be a part of the Aux­il­iary Vol­un­teer Orga­ni­za­tion. The quar­ter­ly meet­ings pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties for our vol­un­teers to get to know each oth­er and be a part of this con­tin­u­ing legacy.

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:

  • Can­cer Cen­ter
    Wel­come patients and guests to our Can­cer Cen­ter and of direc­tion with­in the hos­pi­tal. Offer sup­port to patients receiv­ing treat­ment and pro­vide assis­tance to Staff.
