Volunteering at Mercy Medical Center

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;
  • Committing to a regular shift for a minimum of six months; and
  • Reading the Guide to Becoming a Mercy Volunteer.
