St. Bernardine Medical Center offers a variety of opportunities for individuals who wish to volunteer. Volunteering is a great way to contribute to the community, gain experience working in a hospital setting, and make a difference in the lives of others. Whether you are a high school or college student, are recently retired, or someone who just has spare time and wants to do something fulfilling, we have an opportunity for you.
Our Volunteer History
A group of dedicated women started the hospital’s first group of Auxiliary volunteers in 1959, and thus began a rich legacy of volunteering and fund-raising in support of St. Bernardine Medical Center. Today our hospital benefits from the assistance of two groups of volunteers: the Community Volunteer Team which is comprised of adult (non-student) volunteers, and the Stepping Stones Youth Volunteer Program which is designed for high school and college students. Volunteers have a direct and positive impact on the experience or our patients and staff. Therefore, we are always looking for caring and compassionate individuals to join our volunteer family and make a difference in the lives of others.
Community Volunteer Team
Our Community Volunteer Team is comprised of adult (non-student) volunteers. Whether you are retired, have spare time during the week or on the weekend, or are between jobs and would like to stay active and busy, we would like you to experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to your community and caring for others. We offer several diverse areas from which you may choose to volunteer from assembling patient binders to assisting patients and family members to driving our tram (great for those who like to be outdoors).
Student Volunteers (Ages 16-30)
Through the Stepping Stones Program, teen and young adult volunteers have the opportunity to gain valuable hospital workplace experience. Whether you are looking to fulfill school community service requirements or are looking for work experience, the staff of our Stepping Stones Program works closely with everyone who enrolls, providing you with the tools you need to get ahead. At the same time you are learning new skills, making new friends and experiencing the health care environment up close you will also be building your resume and providing real-life assistance. All you need to become a volunteer is to be dependable, enthusiastic, dedicated to helping others, and a have the desire to learn.
