Volunteer with patient

Hosparus Health In-patient Care Center volunteers enrich the lives of patients and their families by providing and understanding presence. This opportunity is in support of patients and families at our in-patient care center, a 25-bed acute care facility. We will work with your schedule.

Volunteers work in 2-4 hour shifts to:

  • Support and reassure family members
  • Prepare room for new patient
  • Provide companionship to patients including reading a book or writing a note
  • Provide presence to patients and families

All Hosparus Health Inpatient Care Center (HICC) volunteers must attend a New Volunteer Orientation, along with a specialized HICC orientation, successfully pass a background check, complete a 2 step TB Test, flu shot (during flu season) and have immunity to MMR and a current tetanus shot. We will provide the immunizations to you at no charge in our Occupational Health Office.

The first step to becoming a volunteer is completing the volunteer application.
Please visit: hosparushealth.org and click on the volunteer tab.
On our website, you'll find more information about being a volunteer, including the requirements.

Once you've submitted a volunteer application, you'll have the option to register for training. We'll confirm attendance with you after you have signed up.
