Patient Pals

Patient Pal VOLUNTEERS work in various units throughout the hospital.  They bring toys, games, activities and joy to the bedside, helping kids who cannot leave their rooms continue to feel like kids.  They offer breaks to parents and caregivers.  Contact us to learn which shifts are most needed (typically M-F, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.)

Our families put their trust in you

We've heard your feedback about needing flexibility around your schedule.  Starting this spring, we have two commitment levels for full time VOLUNTEERS!

VOLUNTEERS with consistent shift placements commit to at least 1 shift (3 hours) per week for 12 months.  These shifts are scheduled for the same day and time each week.

VOLUNTEERS who need variable shifts can commit to 3-6 shifts (9-18 hours) per month for at least 100 hours.  Variable shifts do not need to be the same day and time.  Instead, they are self-scheduled by each VOLUNTEER.  Placements available include Patient Pals, The Zone, Floaters/Projects and Emergency Department.

VOLUNTEERS must be 18 or older and able to complete requirements of on-boarding (steps typically take 4-6 weeks):  Application, Interview, Drug Test, Background Check, 2 TB Tests, Training Sessions & $20 for your required VOLUNTEER polo.
