There are several different types of volunteer opportunities available, many of which are listed below. Please note that there may be opportunities not included below but may still be available. If you are interested in volunteering with a department that is not included in the list below, you may bring this to our attention directly and we will try to accommodate you.
Orlando Regional Medical Center
Nursing Units: Volunteers who serve on a nursing unit would assist the unit’s nursing staff with a variety of tasks including, but not limited to, answering patient call-bells and on patient rooms, restocking materials, answering the unit telephone, and additional duties assigned.
Guest Services: The Guest Services team serves as the liaison between patients and hospital staff and they are responsible for ensuring that patient and guest needs are consistently met. Volunteers who serve with the Guest Services team will assist with a variety of duties. Responsibilities may include greeting, directing and escorting guests around the different areas of the hospital, as well as answering guest inquiries.
Inpatient/Outpatient Rehabilitation: The rehabilitation team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, registered dieticians, neuropsychologists, therapists and social workers who collaborate to assist each patient in meeting their individualized rehabilitation goals. These areas offer a great experience for students interested in rehabilitation.
Art & Music: For volunteers who possess talent for art or music, Orlando Health has opportunities for them to utilize their skills. If you play an instrument or even like to do arts and crafts, please inquire about this opportunity.
Patient Access: Volunteers who serve with this department will assist with the patients who are first registering for their stay at the hospital. After the patient is registered, the volunteer will guide the patient to his/her destination in the hospital. This is an excellent assignment for volunteers who want to move all throughout the hospital.
Nonclinical Areas: There are many areas in the hospital that do not directly involve patient care but are vital to the hospital’s operation. These areas are also in need of help and give the volunteers unique experience. These areas include but are not limited to: Pharmacy, Conference Services, Occupational Health, and Laboratory.
