Volunteers have always been a vital part of UHS Hospitals, and today they play an even greater role in our continued success.
Volunteers come from all age groups. They enjoy rewarding opportunities and take great pride in their efforts. They also find fulfillment in the hospital’s stimulating environment, achieve work experience and make new friends.
Our volunteer program is designed to fit your unique interests and abilities, and best of all, your schedule. You can volunteer when it’s most convenient for you. So, if you have a little time and the inclination to help others, please consider joining our terrific team of volunteers at any of our four hospitals.
We appreciate the qualities our volunteers bring to UHS. Our hospital volunteer opportunities vary by location, but may include:
- Volunteers staff the gift shops at UHS Wilson Medical Center, UHS Binghamton General Hospital, UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital and Delaware Valley Hospitals.
- Admission/discharge escorts and greeters who escort patients to/from their rooms at admission and discharge, greet and assist patients who are admitted or who are using outpatient services, and walk with patients and visitors to their destinations.
- Ambulatory care center/pre-admission testing volunteers transport patients, deliver laboratory work, file or serve as hosts.
- Clerical assistants address and sort hospital publications for mailing and perform other clerical tasks.
