Volunteering at the Hospital
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!
Whether you work directly with children in playrooms or help delivery the day’s mail, your work as a volunteer through the hospital helps support our full-time staff and our continuing mission:
“Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God.”
Becoming a volunteer is easy, but it does involve a few steps which can take some time. This process helps guarantee the safety of our patients, staff and other volunteers. It also allows us to ensure that the needs of the hospital and the volunteer are both met with a good volunteer/position match.
There are different application deadlines and time requirements, depending on whether you’re an adult or student, or if you’ll be participating in a service project. Learn more about these guidelines.
Our application process involves the following steps:
- Complete the SSM Health volunteer application
- Meet all of the current SSM Health medical/health requirements for volunteers
- Provide all necessary information for a background check
- Submit two references
- Interview with our Volunteer Director
- Attend New Volunteer Orientation
- Now, you’re ready to volunteer!
