One of the best ways to bring joy into your own life is to make helping others a consistent part of your regular routine. If you are looking for a way to give back, consider signing up as a volunteer at St. Pete General Hospital. We have a variety of positions open to volunteers, and a flexible schedule that can accommodate your busy work or home life.
What Do Volunteers Do?
Whether you hope to spend time with our patients and assist visitors, or you’d rather volunteer behind the scenes, we have a position that will best suit your abilities and personality. The gift shop is run by volunteers, where you can help friends and family members pick out small tokens of well wishes for the patients. Volunteers also help manage information desks in the main lobby, the emergency room, and the surgical waiting room. You can help visitors sign in and out, and you will direct them to the rooms of their friends or family. The guardian angel volunteers assist staff workers with patient supplies and handle some non-clinical requests.
What Kind of Time Commitments Do Volunteers Make?
Volunteer shifts last four hours. Some volunteers only commit to one shift, while others request several shifts throughout the week. There are three shifts a day. You can decide whether you’d rather work mornings from 8 am to 12 pm, afternoons from 12 pm to 4 pm, or evenings from 4 pm to 8 pm. There are volunteer openings every day of the week including weekends, although a few positions are only needed Monday through Friday. Our newsletter volunteers contribute on a monthly basis.
