Volunteer Services

Volunteers at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center work with the health care team to offer care that enhances the patient and family experience. Opportunities include:

  • Patient Ambassadors assist newly admitted patients by providing an orientation to the services offered using the Skylight system in patient rooms. Volunteers educate patients and families about parking, ordering meals, room amenities, diversionary activities, University Circle businesses and events, and answer a variety of questions.
  • Ambulatory Care Assistant volunteers work with staff by offering the hospitality of beverages and snacks, comfort care supplies, diversionary activities and companionship during outpatient care in the Infusion Center.
  • Hospitality Cart volunteers provide complimentary beverages and small snacks to patients and families waiting for outpatient appointments as well as offering friendly visitation.
  • Activity Cart volunteers visit inpatients, offering a wide range of complimentary diversionary supplies for activities and projects.
