How to Volunteer
Beginning on March 2, 1955 at Mercy Hospital, volunteers from all walks of life began to devote themselves to extending services that might not otherwise be available.
Our hospital volunteers are easily identified by their courteous smile, helpful attitude, and willing hearts as they serve with a friendly spirit of loyalty.
Volunteering at Mercy Hospital Downtown or Mercy Hospital Southwest offers a rewarding job to fill hours you have available, whether you are male, female, a professional, retiree, stay at home mom, office worker, newcomer, student, or someone looking for a new challenge.
Auxiliary Volunteers work various shifts Monday - Friday between 7:00 am - 7:00 pm.
