Volunteering at South Nassau
Volunteering at South Nassau can be both satisfying and enriching. And there’s no experience necessary! Anyone with a little spare time, an easy smile and a kind heart qualifies. Whether you have just a few hours to give each month, or many hours each week, join us! You can truly make a difference in someone’s life.
As an adult volunteer, or as part of our Junior Volunteer Program, you can either work with patients or help staff with clerical and courier duties in a clinical or administrative area. We sometimes have special opportunities to volunteer, such as Hospital Eldercare, which offers companionship and a chance to interact with seniors; and Animal-Assisted Therapy, which helps hospitalized patients recuperate from illness faster by lessening feelings of fear, anxiety and loneliness, so common during a hospitalization.
The Many Rewards
Our volunteers tell us how rewarding they find their work. No matter what role you choose, you’ll become an important part of our team — for patients, family members, visitors, staff, physicians — and each other! But, in addition to personal rewards, we honor our volunteers with special pins denoting the hours they've worked; and you’ll also be our guest at special volunteer recognition held annually.
