Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber

Volunteer Program

We have over 30 different hospital assignments that provide volunteers with activities ranging from direct care interaction with patients, to helping families find their way around the facility, answering general questions and indirect care that provides behind the scene support to our professional staff.

All hospital volunteers are carefully screened, trained, given appropriate assignments and required to follow hospital policies and procedures. The screening process includes a criminal background check, health screening, an interview and orientation training. We take the time to do it right in order to ensure the safety and well-being of patients and families. The screening and training process also gives the volunteer the confidence needed for a successful experience.

Individual Volunteer Assignments

A variety of hospital volunteer assignments are available. A specific assignment will be determined based on your interests, availability, application status, a personal interview and our most pressing needs at the time of your interview. Typically, hospital assignments can be divided into three categories:

  • Direct Care - These assignments offer direct interaction with our patients and families.
  • Indirect Care - These assignments provide wonderful support to children, their families and our professional staff.
