Escorting patients, assisting with clerical tasks, staffing the gift shop or greeting visitors is just a sampling of the wide range of activities performed by the dedicated volunteers of St. Clair Hospital. Their selfless dedication and ability to provide an extra “human touch” for patients and visitors is an essential component of St. Clair Hospital’s mission to serve others.
Annually, the Hospital’s team of volunteers contributes 90,000 hours of service – a value estimated at nearly $1 million.
Whether you enjoy interacting with patients directly or prefer a non-clinical role, St. Clair Hospital has a variety of assignments available to fit each volunteer’s needs and interests. Some of the volunteer opportunities that are available are:

St. Clair Hospital is a busy facility, with hundreds of patients receiving inpatient and outpatient care daily.
Supportive Visitor volunteers enjoy visiting patients in their rooms and provide companionship throughout their stay.

Volunteers provide refreshments, warm blankets and companionship throughout patient’s chemotherapy treatment.
Volunteers who enjoy welcoming and assisting others often choose to serve at St. Clair Hospital’s Information Desks. These volunteers greet guests and provide directions within the hospital.
Navigation through any hospital can be tricky and our Wayfinder volunteers are there to help. Volunteers round on various floors to provide directional assistance to patients and visitors throughout the hospital and the new Dunlap Outpatient Facility.
The Junior Volunteer Program consists of positions that allow for students 14 years of age and older to experience giving back as a volunteer in a hospital setting.
