Welcome to Benefis Health System. We are excited about your interest in our volunteer program.

As a volunteer, you will provide special services to both our patients and staff. By volunteering, you will enjoy meeting new people, feeling the satisfaction of helping others, and providing a valuable service to the hospital.

Where Can I Volunteer?

Volunteers serve in a variety of areas. Volunteering will give you the rare opportunity to serve in an area that best matches your needs and interests. Some people like to put their special talents to work, while others use volunteering as an opportunity to develop new skills. Whatever skills, talents or interests you have, we can find a volunteer position for you.

Some places volunteers may help:

Baby Hats/Blankets

Volunteers, in the comfort of their own homes, make hats for every newborn baby and blankets for Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) isolets.

General Office Help

Volunteers assist in all areas of the hospital. They answer phones, file, handle mail, and do many other office tasks.

Gift Shops

Volunteers assist visitors and staff as they purchase gifts and other fun items from our four Shop locations at Benefis Health System.

Information Desk/Escort Service

Volunteers meet and greet patients, doctors, vendors and visitors and assist them by providing room numbers, directions, etc. Volunteers also escort non-emergency patients to various hospital departments and rooms, as hospitals can be very confusing places for visitors.

Junior Volunteers

During the summer months, young volunteers between the ages of 14 and 18 can assist in a variety of areas on both Benefis East and West Campuses.

ER Volunteers

Volunteers assist and visit with family and patients.

Waiting Areas

Some volunteers staff the patient waiting areas, such as the Surgery waiting area and the Endoscopy waiting area. They answer phone calls and serve as a liaison for staff and patients' families.


Volunteers rock and read to babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Senior Services Life Enrichment

Volunteers provide a variety of opportunities for creativity and fun for the adult residents and their families at our Senior Services campuses.

Who can volunteer?

Men and women from 14 years of age to retirees are welcome to volunteer. Bring your unique life experiences and helping hands to the Benefis Volunteer Program.
