About Mercy

Prospective Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Mercy Medical Center. Due to the sensitive nature of situations encountered in a hospital setting, Mercy has implemented an extensive screening process which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Attending an hour-long Informational Session to learn more about the application process, hear about volunteer opportunities and receive application materials;
  • Completing a background check, interview, health review and orientations;
  • Being at least 16 years old; Volunteer placements for high school students are currently full. Therefore, applications are not being accepted for this age group at this time. Please continue to check the volunteer website for updates.
  • Committing to a regular shift for a minimum of six months; and
  • Reading the Guide to Becoming a Mercy Volunteer.
  • Please note: Applications for summer-only volunteering are no longer being accepted. Please visit our website early next spring to explore summer-only volunteer opportunities.
