Volunteering at Florida Medical Center

Volunteers share their time, experience, and talent by helping others. Volunteering gives people a sense of accomplishment, and our staff has come to depend on volunteers as an integral part of our healthcare system.

Anyone over age 18 who can commit at least one day a week for a four-hour shift is eligible to become a volunteer. Young people ages 16 and up are eligible to become teen volunteers during the summer.

Florida Medical Center volunteers receive the following benefits:

  • A complimentary meal ticket that can be used in the cafeteria each day you work a four-hour shift
  • Complimentary flu shots and health screenings on selected dates
  • Access to community lectures

Florida Medical Center volunteers are placed in more than 30 different hospital areas, including:

  • Information desk
  • Gift shop
  • Patient care units
  • Emergency department
  • Family waiting areas
  • Nutrition services
  • Central supply department
  • Health information


Placement is based on your interests, the hospital’s needs, and the times and days there are volunteer openings.

Volunteer training
Florida Medical Center welcomes all volunteers. You will be required to attend a general orientation that provides an introduction to the hospital and an explanation of hospital policies. On-the-job training will be provided in each specific hospital assignment. You will also be expected to attend in-service training as required by the hospital, and to comply with a tuberculosis skin test to meet hospital health requirements.
