Volunteer Opportunities

Guest relations

  • Family Liaisons: Volunteers in the surgery lounge maintain a comforting environment for families waiting on news about their loved one. Volunteers provide refreshments, reading materials and information about the hospital and surrounding area, while keeping visitors informed of a patient’s progress.
  • Gift Shop: Volunteers assist customers with gift selection and check out, and the staff with displays and inventory.
  • Information: For those who enjoy serving the public, the hospital’s information desks are an ideal location. These volunteers direct visitors throughout the facility, answer phones, give visitors patients’ room numbers and help locate doctors’ offices.
  • Ambassadors: Touro ambassadors may be the first person a patient or family meets as they enter the hospital. These volunteers welcome, greet, direct, and accompany patients and guests throughout the hospital.

Patient support

  • Infusion Center: Comfort cancer patients during their chemotherapy with warm blankets, hot drinks, a light meal, and a menu of supportive activities.
  • Pastoral Care: Support patients and families of all faiths through spiritual companionship and prayer, and provide spiritual nourishment to Catholic patients and families through Eucharistic ministry.

Staff support

  • Administrative: Volunteers assist the hospital’s administrative staff with copying, filing, data entry, and assembling educational materials.
  • Clinical: Volunteers interested in medical careers serve in the emergency department and the outpatient centers of the hospital.
