Are you energetic, compassionate, and looking for a way to make a difference? Are you searching for a way to meet new people? Are you interested in exploring a career in a medical field? The EIRMC volunteer program may be right for you!
Our team members are of all ages. We come from different backgrounds and walks of life. But we all have one thing in common: our passion for service. Whether answering phones, escorting visitors, cuddling babies or visiting patients, we are improving the lives of those we touch.
Volunteers work four-hour shifts and at least 100 hours a year, giving even those with the busiest lives an opportunity to make a difference. If you are compassionate, committed, and ready to serve, you can fill out our Volunteer Application online, or print out the adult or juniorapplication. Once complete, drop off at the Information Desk or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you!
Adult volunteers form the backbone of our team. We are capable and friendly, confident in our ability to make a difference in the lives of others. We drive shuttles, direct visitors, cuddle babies, and deliver books and toys to patients. We employ our professional skills as patient ambassadors, chaplains, and pet partners. And as we do what we do best, we free the hospital staff to focus on what they do best: patient care.
Energetic and committed, Junior volunteers (ages 14-18) play a key role in serving patients and their families. Operating book carts, answering phones, and escorting patients, their friendly smiles are often the first our visitors encounter.
Pet partners work closely with nursing and therapy staff to help speed the recovery of patients dealing with major changes such as adapting to long term injuries or limited mobility resulting from a stroke. They also spend time simply visiting patients, visitors and staff throughout the hospital.
