Volunteer Services Department

*At this time, as an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19, we are minimizing volunteer services at the hospital effective Thursday, 3/12/2020:

  • Any volunteer who is showing signs of illness (cough, fever, shortness of breath, etc.) should communicate with Volunteer Services Department (VSD) and NOT come in for their shift.
  • Volunteers who are under the age of 18 and over the age of 65 are being asked to NOT come in for their volunteer shifts until at least May 12, 2020.
  • Volunteers who have traveled internationally are required to take a minimum of 14 days off upon arrival back to the US, and please touch base with VSD before returning to volunteer.
  • Volunteers who have gone on domestic travel, please touch base with VSD when you return from your trip to see if anything has changed.

Things are likely to change, and if/when they do, we will be sure to send out correspondence to reflect those changes. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!  And, for helping keep our patients and yourselves healthy and safe.


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. 

Magee Rehabilitation Hospital performs background checks on all volunteers once a position is determined for the volunteer. 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.
