Volunteer Opportunities

Whether they are escorting a patient from admitting to another department, ringing up a sale in the Gift Shop, or comforting a family waiting for a patient in surgery, Thomas Hospitals volunteers are a vital part of our hospital family. This committed group of women and men provides the extra hands and hearts that allow us to deliver quality, compassionate care to our community. Here is the process for becoming a volunteer (age 18 or over):

  • Please complete the Volunteer Application Form below.
  • After your application is reviewed, you will be contacted to make an appointment for an interview.
  • Upon acceptance into the Volunteer Program, you must undergo a criminal background check.
  • Upon acceptance into the Volunteer Program, you must attend a general orientation and training session.

Volunteers usually work a four- to six-hour shift, one to two days a week. Volunteers are matched with their area of interest, day/time desired, and position opening. Adult volunteers become a member of the Hospital Auxiliary. For over 50 years, the Auxiliary has been an active supporter of the hospital. The Auxiliary is a nonprofit, self-governing membership organization. It provides financial support for patient care projects, healthcare scholarships, and community agencies. Membership dues are $5.00 annually.

Summer VolunTEEN Program

Thomas Hospitals offers a volunteer program for students ages 14-18 during the summer months only. Applications for this program are accepted beginning March 1 of every year. Students are encouraged to submit applications early because space is limited. Students may choose to volunteer at Thomas Memorial Hospital or Thomas Orthopedic Hospital (Saint Francis Campus) and must commit to working at least six weeks/four hours per week, from the middle of June through the end of July. Fill out the form below to apply.
