Volunteer your time and talents

In an ongoing effort to proceed with an abundance of caution and a steadfast commitment to patient safety, all on-site volunteer opportunities have been suspended at this time.

Volunteers play an important role in the overall success of clinical services at UW Health. Volunteers come from all walks of life, but they all have a genuine interest in helping others. Volunteer positions are available at UW Health adult and pediatric emergency departments, as well as with general hospital services.
