Get Involved Today!

Mercy Health System's Volunteer Program offers a variety of opportunities at each of our four distinguished hospitals and at our continuing care centers to make a difference in the lives of people who are ill. Volunteers make possible many of the extra services that greatly benefit our patients and their families. By showing your compassion and generosity of time and talent, you become an integral partner in helping Mercy Health System achieve its mission of community service.

If you are at least 16 years of age* (or, in some instances, 18 or older), there is an opportunity that is right for you, close to home! To apply, simply call one of our volunteer managers to set up an appointment. Then, download the appropriate form, complete it and bring it along to the scheduled interview.

Please note that upon completion of the interview process, volunteer applicants must submit to a reference check, background check and a health clearance.

*Minors under 18 years old need parent's or guardian's permission to volunteer. A parental consent form is available as part of the student download package.
