Make a Difference by Becoming a UH Cleveland Medical Center Volunteer

Volunteers are an integral part of the team at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center. Our volunteers are exceptional individuals who take the extra steps that make a difference in the lives of our patients, their families and our visitors. They help in countless ways, from delivering flowers and reading materials to hospitalized patients to comforting families who are worried about loved ones. Through their deeds, direct and indirect, volunteers are an essential extension of the UH Cleveland Medical Center team.

Whether volunteers are interested in supporting patients and families on patient divisions, lowering families’ stress levels by helping them find their way around the hospital, or supporting staff behind the scenes in a clerical capacity, we may have an important role for them that will impact the hospital experience for UH patients and families.
