Volunteer Services Department

New volunteers are always welcome at Magee. We need your time, your talents and your desire to make a difference for our patients in many departments: Guest Relations and Volunteer Services, Dining Services, Administrative Support, Clinical Support, and Therapy Shadowing Opportunities.

The Volunteer Services Department (VSD) accepts and encourages the involvement of volunteers in various roles throughout the hospital. As a volunteer you would provide services which benefit patients, visitors and staff. As a department, we strive to create rewarding experiences for all who volunteer their time and talents.

We ask for a minimum commitment of six months or 100 hours of service for volunteer roles.

Our shadowing program is a 60 hour commitment. 

Magee Rehabilitation Hospital performs background checks on all volunteers and shadowing students once a position is determined. All interested volunteers must attend an orientation session at the hospital prior to placement. Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital.
