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!
