Volunteers share their time, experience and talent by helping others. Volunteering gives people a sense of accomplishment, and our staff has come to depend on volunteers
as an integral part of our healthcare system.
Anyone over age 18 who can commit at least one day a week to a four-hour shift is eligible to become a volunteer. Young people ages 16 and up are eligible to become teen volunteers during the summer.
Benefits of volunteering
Giving back to your community can provide a depth and satisfaction that you may not know is missing from your life.
Florida Medical Center volunteers receive the following benefits:
A complimentary meal ticket that can be used in the cafeteria each day you work a four-hour shift
Complimentary flu shots and health screenings on selected dates
Access to community lectures
Where volunteers serve
Florida Medical Center volunteers are placed in more than 30 different hospital areas, including:
Patient care units
Family waiting areas
Central supply department
Placement is based on your interests, the hospital’s needs, and the times and days there are volunteer openings.
Florida Medical Center welcomes all volunteers. You will be required to attend a general orientation that provides an introduction to the hospital and an explanation of hospital policies. On-the-job
training will be provided in each specific hospital assignment. You will also be expected to attend in-service training as required by the hospital, and to comply with a tuberculosis skin test to meet hospital health requirements.
