A tradition of caring
As a volunteer, you meet new and exciting people. You experience how a state-of-the-art medical facility operates. You may enhance your interpersonal and professional skills. Finally, as a volunteer at Fairview Park Hospital you have the deep satisfaction knowing your caring nature, compassion and dedication to serving others has touched the lives of so many people. We have many wonderful volunteers and always have room for more!
Where do I fit in?
Volunteers make an important contribution to our health care team. There are many areas throughout the hospital relying on volunteers for assistance. They include the information desk, visitor management at secured access areas, non-clinical assistance in the emergency department, outpatient areas and nursing stations.
As a volunteer, you may be asked to perform any number of duties. You could assist with mailing services, serve as a greeter for outpatient areas, help at community health screenings or provide wheelchair transportation for discharged patients. The volunteer coordinator works with you to match your skills and interests with the hospital's needs. We want your volunteer experience to be rewarding.
Who can volunteer?
You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer. You are never too old to volunteer, nor are you expected to put in long hours. You need only volunteer a minimum of six hours a month to remain in good standing with the program. We hope that our volunteers will bring their passion and commit to a long term, rewarding experience with our program.
Fairview Park Hospital also takes pride in their chaplain program. The mission of the facility chaplain is to offer spiritual guidance, comfort and pastoral care to patients and families in need. Chaplains specialize in comforting and leading individuals and families through personal crisis, grief, bereavement and help alleviate general anxiety associated with a difficult hospital stay. Chaplains minister to all who are in need — not just one specific religion. While they may not share the same ideologies as an individual, their purpose is to help them in their time of need spiritually and emotionally. Lastly, chaplains are available 24/7 to help those in need, and they serve on a rotational on-call schedule day and night.
How do I become a volunteer/chaplain?
All volunteers/chaplains must complete an application, authorize a criminal background check, pass a drug/alcohol test screening, get a TB test (at the expense of Fairview Park Hospital) and attend an orientation prior to starting their assignment.
For high school/college students, the program is in full swing during summertime to maximize the opportunity for hours. That is our peak of volunteer season; however, you can apply at any time during the year. For youth/college students that are volunteering for the summer only, the deadline for applications is April 22. You can mail/email your application at the addresses below, or drop them off at the main lobby of the hospital.

Upon being received, your application will be processed as soon as possible. You will be contacted for an interview and if approved, you will be asked to complete a background check and follow additional steps for volunteering or joining our Chaplain program.
