If you’re interested in volunteering with St. Michael’s Hospital, please visit to explore the volunteer program. Our volunteers truly make a difference every day.

Volunteering can also be part of an active and healthy retirement. Studies show that older adults who volunteer regularly are more likely to stay active, meet new friends, learn new things and connect with their community. Our seniors really enjoy volunteering with us and we would love you to consider joining our team.

The hospital relies on the dedication of our many volunteers to improve the experience of our patients and visitors.

Volunteers provide compassionate and personal service in many areas of the hospital, including patient rooms, lobbies, waiting rooms, clinics and the gift shop.
