Volunteer at Wesley
Wesley Medical Center is proud to give community members seeking volunteer opportunities in Wichita, KS the chance to play an integral role for our team. Volunteers may serve every day of the week for morning, afternoon or evening shifts. 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 surgery waiting room, 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 healthcare staff, provides patients and their families with support and comfort and reaffirms the basic principle of helping people in need. After a brief training period, volunteers are assigned tasks based on their areas of interest and our patients’ needs.
