Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare Volunteer Services

Volunteers are an essential part of the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital mission "to enhance the health of the communities and the customers we serve."

In order to make the experience as rewarding as possible, our Volunteer Services staff works closely with each volunteer to match their skills and interests with a position. Volunteer opportunities are available in dozens of areas on the Main Campus as well as in our outpatient locations and retail shops.

Volunteer hours and days are flexible, although a minimum of 50 hours of work is required within a six month period.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help out at the Pink Elephant Resale Shop and the gift shops at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital.

Teen Volunteers

Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare's Teen Volunteer program offers energetic and caring teenagers the opportunity to perform a variety of rewarding tasks throughout the health system. From clerical and indirect patient care opportunities, to working on nursing unites and Immediate Care Centers, to assisting with special projects and community events, the program is an ideal way to develop teamwork and leadership skills and learn more about a career in the medical field.

Teens interested in joining the program must be 14 years of age or older and at least a freshman in high school. Teens must commit at least 25 hours of volunteering within a three month period and complete an orientation session.

*Our Teen Volunteer program is not accepting applications at this time. Please check back in this fall, when our volunteer program will reopen and begin accepting new applications.

This site is part of the Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare network of Web sites, which covers a variety of topics using the same philosophy: When it comes to medical care, we know that you have a lot of options. And we want you to know that you're more than a patient to us. You're an individual. We would appreciate the opportunity to provide you with state-of-the-art medical care and down-to-earth, personalized attention.
