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.

New Start Date for Walking for Wellness

Posted on: September 21, 2017

Walking for Wellness at the Jacksonville High School Bowl returns for another season of exercise and fellowship Monday, Oct. 2. The Walking for Wellness program provides a safe place in which to get walking exercise when weather conditions make walking outside unpleasant or dangerous. The program is open 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day Jacksonville School District 117 is in session. The program is closed during school holidays (including Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation) and any day school is not in session. On average, 75 people walk at the JHS Bowl each day the program is open—resulting in about 6,400 “encounters” with community members during the five months each year that Walking for Wellness is in session. Walking for Wellness is also offered year-round at First Christian Church, 2106 S. Main, in South Jacksonville. The church is open to walkers Monday-Friday 12:30 to 3 p.m. Walkers there should use the south entrance. There is no cost to participate in Walking for Wellness. Registration is not required. For additional details on Walking for Wellness, please call Passavant’s Marketing and Communications Department, 245-9541, extension 3129.
