Volunteer at Wesley!
Wesley Medical Center is proud to give community members seeking volunteer opportunities the chance to play an integral role for our team. Our volunteers provide thousands of hours each year of their time to help support our patients, families, guests and staff in a variety of ways. There are many opportunities, ranging from working at an information desk, assisting families in the emergency department, helping escort patients and guests around the hospital as well as many more integral positions within the facility.
Our volunteers aren’t just a part of our guest services department; they are part of the Wesley family. The efforts that our volunteers put forth directly complements the work of our nursing and other health care staff, provides patients and their families with support and comfort and reaffirms the basic principle of helping others in need. After orientation and training, volunteers are assigned tasks based on their areas of interest and our patients’ needs.
Our VolunTeen program is a fun and unique way for high school students to learn more about the health care environment while helping the patients, families and guests we serve.
You are considered a VolunTeen if you are still enrolled in high school, or have just graduated but not yet started college. Prospective applicants must be 15 years of age by June 1, 2018 and have completed their freshman year of high school by end of the 2017-2018 school year.
Energetic , friendly and committed VolunTeens play a key role in serving our patients and families. Applications are only accepted April 2-April 13, 2018. Please see more information here:
Our adult volunteers are the backbone of our team. They assist our patients, guests and staff with a variety of needs and provide excellent customer service every single day. We ask for a minimum commitment of six consecutive months. Many volunteers enjoy their work so much however, they contribute hours for many years.
All accepted adult volunteers are required to have a Tuberculosis screening, provided free of charge, and a background check. Volunteers must also attend all orientation and training sessions.
All potential adult volunteer candidates are asked to attend an information session to start the volunteer process. Please note that these information sessions are for adult volunteers only. Information sessions are held on the first Wednesday of every month at 5 p.m. at Wesley Medical Center Intrust Rooms, 550 N. Hillside, Wichita, KS 67214. We will not have an information session in March 2018. If you park in the visitor’s parking garage at the corner of Hillside and Murdock, come in through the main doors and bright yellow signs will guide you . To sign up for an information session, please call Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at (316) 962-2100. We are currently full on our cuddler program at this time.
