Volunteering

Volunteer at Emory University Hospital or Emory University Hospital Midtown

Emory Healthcare volunteers are caring individuals who enjoy giving back to their community. Our volunteers share their time, talents and experience all over the Emory Healthcare system. At Emory University Hospital and Emory University Hospital Midtown, volunteers support our gift shops and our admissions department, wayfinding (patient visitor escort), visit patient rooms with book carts, provide visitor support in the ICU and surgery waiting rooms, and raise funds for everything from equipment to scholarships. Volunteers also serve in the thrift boutique and the emergency department.
