Each year, more than 1,300 very special people donate their time, efforts and talents to help improve the experiences of our patients and their families. These dedicated people provide the foundation for the success of Volunteer Services at UI Hospitals and Clinics and UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Over 100,000 hours are donated annually, valued at over $2 million.
We invite everyone in our community to consider volunteering at UI Hospitals and Clinics and UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital. We have many opportunities available for community members, UI Hospitals and Clinics staff, college students, and high school students.
Volunteer Services sponsors businesses and partners with others to add to the patient and visitor experience. Every time you order a cup of coffee or purchase a bouquet of flowers from one of these businesses, you help raise funds for many hospital initiatives that benefit patients and visitors.
