Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns
Volunteer Opportunities at Sharp Mary Birch
One small kindness can change a life.
By volunteering at Sharp Mary Birch, you'll make a difference in the lives of others while giving back to, and being part of, your community.
We are currently accepting applications for adult volunteers. Because of the resurgence in COVID cases, we are postponing accepting applications from high school students. Please watch this page for updates.
So many ways to make a difference.
Our wide range of volunteer opportunities allows you to choose how you can make the greatest impact. We are happy to accommodate your passions and ideas to find the right fit for you. Here are a few possibilities:
- Arts for Healing program
- Clinical procedural department
- Lobby concierge desk
- Maternal infant services
- New Beginnings Boutique & Gift Shop
- NICU Volunteer Baby Cuddler Program - Baby cuddlers must have had at least six months volunteer experience with us, and at least 100 volunteer hours. Because this program is in high demand, there are usually very few available positions. Prior to volunteering in this program, you must clear a background check and participate in a cuddler-specific training.
Expand your own horizons.
In addition to helping your community and meeting new people, the benefits of volunteering with us include learning and career exploration, health care-related college scholarship opportunities and a $6 cafeteria meal credit during each shift.
We make it easy and flexible to schedule your volunteer hours. All of our clinical departments utilize a live, cloud-based scheduling program that's accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We'd love to welcome you to our team. When you're ready to apply, please review our volunteer health clearances and requirements.
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
