Orlando Health team members are encouraged to volunteer alongside family, friends, and colleagues throughout the community in ways that may or may not utilize their professional skills.
Participation in any pro bono volunteer opportunity, whether listed or otherwise, does not fall within the scope of your employment with Orlando Health. As such, if participating in any pro bono activity participation will be at your own risk, including the need for any malpractice or other insurance coverage.
Orlando Health team members have the opportunity to experience the work our local non-profit partners do by volunteering a few hours at a local non-profit’s facility. All Orlando Health team members are welcome to sign up for volunteer opportunities that include sorting donated school supplies at A Gift for Teaching, building homes with Habitat for Humanity, packing emergency food boxes at Second Harvest Food Bank, preparing meals for families staying at Ronald McDonald House, and more. If you are interested in being notified of volunteer opportunities like this, please email [email protected] to be added to the email list.
