Volunteering at Women's College Hospital

Volunteers play an important role at Women's College Hospital, as they have throughout the hospital's history. Our volunteers come from many walks of life, all age groups - students through seniors - each with unique skills to contribute. We have a dedicated group of over 130 active volunteers who work alongside busy healthcare teams in more than 30 areas of the hospital.

  • Waiting Room Volunteers assist and support patients and their families who are waiting for medical tests or procedures.
  • Information Desk Volunteers greet patients and visitors who enter the hospital and offer directions and information.
  • Clinic Office Help Volunteers provide administrative support in clinic offices, like calling patients to remind them of their appointments.
  • Other Volunteers  provide much-needed assistance to staff in areas including:
    • Medical Imaging
    • Dermatology
    • Surgical Day Care
    • Family Practice
    • Osteoporosis
