Their dedicated service:
Wesley Healthcare volunteers play a key role for our Wesley team. Our volunteers provide thousands of hours each year and help support our patients, families, guests and staff in a variety of ways. There are many opportunities, from working at an information desk to assisting families in the surgery waiting room or helping escort patients and guests around the hospital.
- Complements the work of nursing and other healthcare staff
- Provides patients and their families with support and comfort
- Reaffirms the basic tenet of healthcare of people helping people in need, simply because they care
Our volunteers aren’t just a part of our guest services department; they are part of the Wesley family. After a brief training period, volunteers are assigned tasks based on their areas of interest and our patients’ needs.
Volunteers may serve every day of the week for morning, afternoon or evening shifts.
