Adult Volunteers

Volunteers are an important part of our UC Health community and we welcome your application to get involved. We believe that you can help us make a difference. 


All volunteers will go through an application and interview process to determine where their skills are best needed within various departments of our hospitals. Opportunities for our adult volunteers vary by location, but could include:

  • Clerical work.
  • Assisting and escorting patients and visitors.
  • Customer service roles in waiting rooms and clinic environments.
  • Patient floor opportunities.
  • Working in the gift shop. 
  • Staffing the front desk.
  • Special projects, which may take place off-site.
  • and many more!


A minimum commitment of 50 hours over a period of 6 months may be required. Requirements may vary per location and final details will be discussed during the interview process. Most volunteers will work 4-5 hours per week. Day, evening and weekend shifts may be available. 


In order to become a UC Health volunteer, you are required to:

  • Pass a background check. 
  • Attend a mandatory orientation and training session.
