Volunteers are an important part of Elliot Health System’s mission to inspire wellness, heal our patients, and serve with compassion in every interaction.

Volunteering at The Elliot

At The Elliot, our volunteers provide invaluable support to patients, visitors and team members. Hundreds of volunteers comprise our team and come with varied backgrounds and experience, but they do share a common desire to touch people's lives and make a difference by contributing to the community in which we all live.

Volunteering at the Elliot not only helps patients and families, it also provides our volunteers with opportunities to learn, and a well-deserved feeling of personal fulfillment. We work with each volunteer to find appropriate positions that they will enjoy, that fit their skillset, and accommodate their schedule.

We appreciate every volunteer's generous gift of time and talent!

Volunteers serve in many areas throughout Elliot Health System, performing a variety of tasks, such as welcoming and escorting patients and visitors, assisting staff in clinical and non-clinical areas, visiting with patients or just making sure our patients and their families are as comfortable as possible.

Volunteers assist Elliot team members in many departments at the hospital and throughout the community. Additionally, our volunteers contribute to various hospital programs, including spiritual care, pet therapy and more.
