Mission Statement

Staten Island University Hospital is dedicated to providing our community with the best possible quality care through continuous quality improvement efforts. We consider employees to be our greatest resource. We continually examine the way we do our work in order to make improvements and prevent errors. Exceeding the needs and expectations of our customers is the basis for all that we do.

Description

Dear Staten Islander: We are recruiting volunteers to help us assist with basic non-medical customer service and essential communications. Please, be advised, that there will not be a direct patient contact. Most of volunteer responsibilities are limited to clerical duties: sending faxes, making copies, light filing, answering phones etc. We are also recruiting bilingual volunteers. The Language Assistance Program is an initiative to provide greater access to healthcare services for persons with Limited English Proficiency. This program was designed to facilitate interpretive services throughout Staten Island University Hospital. Since cultural diversity on Staten Island is on the rise, we are in need of volunteers, who speak at least one language other than English. If you or someone you know posses this skill, you could make a difference and truly help someone. As a Staten Island University Hospital Volunteer you would be a vital member of our Hospital Team. Often, you could be one of the first members of the hospital team to meet patients and visitors and help them with their needs, which is why we are asking you for your support. Even just a few hours a week could make a difference. You may pick your own hours and day(s) to volunteer and there are several assignments to choose from as well as the locations (North or South). We need you! The community needs you! Be a Volunteer! Now, what's in it for you? - A complimentary meal on the day(s) you volunteer - A reduction of Hospital/Health care costs - An annual free flu vaccination - An annual free PPD skin test for tuberculosis - Annual free recognition ceremonies - Special trips and social activities - Interaction with others committed to volunteering - Personal knowledge that you made a difference In addition, you will get a letter of recommendation and in the nearest future when you apply to a college or look for a job this experience will look great on your resume. So, good luck and we hope to see you soon at our Hospital. If you or someone you know are interested and /or would like to get more information about our Program, please contact Marina Novikova at (718) 226-8435 Monday through Thursday 9am-3pm. Sincerely, Marina Novikova Language Assistance Coordinator At Volunteer Services Department of SIUH

I have been to Staten Island University for outpatient testing, and also surgery. Everyone on the staff made me feel comfortable and safe during times of nervousness.
