Hospice has been praised for being the nation's first coordinated care service. At the heart of hospice are our volunteers!

Join our Gateway Family - and be part of a team of professionals, including Physicians, Nurses, Hospice Aides, Social Workers and Chaplains to provide quality end of life care.

There are several ways volunteers can lend themselves to serve patients and families. Opportunities include providing a listening ear as a companion volunteer; providing respite for caregivers to have a break; managing special projects in our North Hills office; supporting caregivers who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

Gateway Hospice serves patients and families throughout the Western Pennsylvania Region - including Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Washington, Westmoreland counties.

We are always looking for new ideas on how to better serve our patients and families, through innovative programs, such as our 'Life Stories' program, Art or Music activities, Veterans serving Veterans, or friendly Pet visits to our patients residing in nursing homes. If you have a talent and/or idea you would like to share with us, please do not hesitate to reach out.

We provide training, PPE and other safety measures to keep you healthy while visiting hospice patients in their homes or nursing facilities.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Mission Statement

"To provide quality end of life carethrough listening and education and responding to the needs of those we serve, our community and team."


Gateway Hospice volunteers are the heart of our organization. Volunteers do a variety of different things that help promote our mission of providing quality end of life care. From providing a listening ear as a companion volunteer, to providing respite for the caregiver to go grocery shopping or to their own medical appointment, to managing special projects in our North Hills office as "behind the scenes" support. Volunteers also can get involved with our bereavement program, making phone calls to bereaved family and friends. Music and art are a powerful way volunteers can connect with our patients, especially those with dementia. Pets are welcomed to pay friendly visits to our patients residing in nursing homes. The possibilities go on and on.

If you are interested in learning more, please call us at 412-536-2020, or email Suzanne Ferguson at sferguson@gatewayhospice.com.
