Volunteers


Volunteer.wheelchairPassavant volunteers are at the core of what we do. They go the extra mile to make sure we are providing our patients with exceptional care. They lend a helping hand to areas that need a little extra attention. They give of their time freely, asking only for smiles in return.

That’s why when we place our volunteers, we keep in mind their talents and interests–carefully matching them to our list of current openings, just as if we were considering them for employment.

Areas in which volunteers provide service include:

  • Ambulatory Surgery
  • Blood Bank
  • Clerical Assistance
  • Gift Shop
  • Hospital Messenger/Flower Delivery
  • Surgical Waiting Room
  • Imaging
  • Information Center
  • Laundry
  • Oncology
  • Pastoral Care Office
  • Patient Registration
  • Rehabilitation Services
  • Sewing Ladies
  • Transitional Care Unit
  • Wound Center

Here is a more detailed description of the volunteer opportunities available at Passavant, including hours and days needed, qualifications, and duties.
