Volunteer Opportunities

We have many opportunities for caring members of our community to get involved and we are confident we will find the perfect one for you! Some of our positions require strict schedules (i.e. only weekdays, set four-hour shifts, etc.), while other positions offer more flexibility.

Note: If you are under the age of 18, please view our High School Student Volunteer section for information on how you can get involved.
 
Here are just a few examples of our opportunities:

  • Patient Assistance – Volunteers greet, transport patients being admitted to or discharged from the hospital and give directions to visitors. Volunteers also gain the pleasure of delivering flowers and mail to our patients.

  • Surgical Services Family Liaison - Volunteers maintain a supportive environment for families waiting for patients in surgery.  They provide updates to family members and assistance with navigating the various resources available during their loved one's stay.

  • Caring Calls - For volunteers that love to talk on the phone you will be happy here! Volunteer callers make contact every morning of the week to people living alone. The callers check in with the Telecare participants between 7:30 and 10 am. Some talk of the weather, some talk of their day's plans, some don't talk at all! They all depend on someone calling to say hello. Volunteers generally fill one day a week.

  • Office Helpers - Those that love detail, filing, phones, and making friends while working independently will while away their time very quickly helping with office support throughout the hospital.

  • Cancer Care Resource Ambassadors - Northern Light Cancer Care ambassadors assist our patients in discovering resources to help them through their journey as well as helping with hospitality, allowing our patients to experience warm and comfortable visits. The tasks are numerous and almost always revolve around helping people.

  • Pet Therapy – What lifts spirits more than a visit with a furry friend? EMMC is proud to welcome certified therapy dogs registered with TDI or Pet Partners to have leashed visits with patients and employees alike throughout the hospital.

  • Reiki – Reiki helps to support the healing of the mind, body and spirit all through working with a patient’s energy. Volunteers must be a Reiki Level I, II or Master Practitione
