College Volunteer Opportunities at UH Cleveland Medical Center
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at UH Cleveland Medical Center. The College Volunteer program is full for fall semester 2022, with the exception of wayfinding. Please submit an application at this link if you wish to volunteer as a wayfinder at UH.
Wayfinders offer assistance to patients and visitors, help individuals navigate the UH campus, provide directions, and accompany patients to their appointments. UH’s campus can be intimidating for new visitors and patients, and wayfinders aid those who may otherwise get lost in the hospital, miss their scheduled appointments, or are unable to find their loved ones’ hospital rooms. Wayfinders help hospitals run smoothly by ensuring that patients arrive at their destinations. They save time, relieve patient and visitor stresses, and decrease staff workload, giving our medical staff extra time to focus on patient care. Finally, wayfinders are UH’s “eyes and ears,” helping security staff maintain a safe hospital campus.
We ask all of our volunteers to commit to 50 hours of service before moving to a new position; however we will give first priority to wayfinders when placing them in new roles once their service commitment is met. Non-traditional college volunteers: please contact Volunteer Services at 216-844-1504 to inquire about additional volunteer opportunities and availability.
