Volunteer at BayCare

Our volunteers are a vital part of our team, and we always strive to ensure their health and well-being. With the number of COVID-19 cases increasing, we feel it is in the best interest of our volunteers to suspend our volunteer services immediately. We appreciate the contribution of each volunteer and want to do our part to protect our volunteers and the community. For BayCare’s most up-to-date information, please visit www.BayCare.org/Coronavirus.

Volunteering at any of our 15 BayCare hospitals offers a rewarding and enriching experience for both our volunteers and the community. We match our volunteers to a variety of roles, based on the volunteer’s skills and interests.

From information desk responsibilities to golf cart drivers, we have a place for you at our BayCare hospitals! (Applicants must be 18 years old or older.)

Hospital Volunteer Benefits

Our hospital volunteers receive many benefits as a thank you for lending your time and talents. We appreciate all you do!

Some of our benefits include: Orientation to our hospital, training and service description specific to your volunteer assignment, meal allowance when you work a minimum of four hours per shift, flexible schedule of mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends, free TB and flu shots, and much more.

Pet Therapy at BayCare

Caring Paws dogs interact with patients at the hospital and can help reduce anxiety, depression and fatigue. Our dogs provide comfort, entertainment and a positive distraction, not just to the patient but to friends, family and our staff. All dogs are trained, certified and vaccinated. Once in service, the dogs get their own official badge.

For more information, contact the Volunteer Resources Dept. of your hospital of choice below.
