There are three main types of volunteer opportunities at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center: patient and family support, customer service, and administrative assistance.
When patients are hospitalized, undergo surgery, or are treated for an emergency medical situation, it can be quite stressful, confusing and lonely—for both them and their families. Lahey volunteers are available in several capacities to help ease these feelings:
Making Lahey an inviting place for patients, family members, and visitors is the top priority for volunteers. Whether it’s circulating a gift cart with magazines, toiletries and miscellaneous gift items on inpatient floors, escorting patients to clinical appointments, or providing directory assistance to visitors, Lahey volunteers are there to lend a hand.
In a busy clinic setting, Lahey colleagues can often use all the help they can get. Lahey volunteers are an incredibly convenient supplemental staffing resource for Lahey departments in need. Volunteers provide assistance with light office duties ranging from data entry, filing and faxing to the coordination of mass mailings.
