Volunteer

Our Volunteers add an extra special touch to the lives of those they serve.

At SMH, volunteers may be found helping our patients, organizing fundraising events or helping those who are helping our patients.

They are dedicated and caring individuals who serve as a part of the SMH Team to provide the best in total patient care. There are many opportunities for volunteers at SMH, including:

  • Patient Comfort Rounds - Help bring a smile to a patient's face by delivering a selection of books, games, or other items on our Patient Care Cart. Stop and chat a while, and make a difference!
  • Information Desk Ambassadors - As an Ambassador, you may help someone find their way in the hospital, answer a simple question, or simply offer a smile and a greeting to brighten a day!
  • Care Package Gift Shop - Do you have experience in retail? We could use your help in our Gift Shop, serving visitors and employees!
  • Angels in the ER - You can help ER visitors by providing information and updates to family members, escorting a patient, or just being there to listen.
  • Wheelchair Escorts - Many of our patients require a wheelchair once they have completed registration. You can make it easier for them to get to their hospital destination.
  • Project Management - Do you like to plan events or work on projects? We could use your help in the Volunteer Services office!
  • Clerical Support - Every good organization needs good people to handle the behind-the-scenes work. You could volunteer to be one of those important people!
