Volunteer Services

Join our team of volunteers servicing St. Vincent's Medical Center and the Fairfield Region!

Thank you for your interest in helping us care for the St. Vincent's Medical Center community. We are grateful for our volunteers and for your consideration. As a Medical Center volunteer, your service will make every moment matter for our patients, visitors, and staff.

Front desk volunteer

Each volunteer brings a unique contribution to our programs and makes a positive difference in our daily operations. We carefully select volunteers to join us in our mission of providing the highest quality customer service, while demonstrating our core values of doing the kind thing, the safe thing, the best thing, and the right thing for our patients, families, and community.

Volunteer Services provides complementary services to patients, families, visitors and staff. There are many opportunities available for our volunteers at different areas of the hospital and off-site locations, in both clinical and nonclinical roles.

Working Together

Let us pair your skills and talents with the best volunteer positions available. We work together with our volunteers, finding an assignment that matches their interests, abilities, and availability according to the Medical Center's needs. Majority of our assignments are restricted to weekdays, 8am- 4pm, though some evening and weekend options are available.


We value our volunteers and the giving of their time and talents. Volunteers receive these special perks at the Medical Center: Free parking each time you volunteer, a complementary meal each day you volunteer, an annual appreciation brunch and gift, free flu vaccines when available, and a discount in our Gift Shops.

Teen Applications are now CLOSED

**NOTICE: Teen Volunteer Applications Closed for Summer 2024**

Due to an overwhelming response, we are no longer accepting applications for our Teen Summer Volunteer Program for 2024. We have received far more qualified applicants than we can accommodate this year.  

Thank you to everyone who applied to volunteer. We were incredibly impressed by the number of talented, enthusiastic students who expressed interest in our program. Unfortunately, we simply do not have enough volunteer roles available to offer positions to all qualified applicants this summer.

If you submitted a volunteer application for summer 2024, we will keep your information on file. Please check back in early 2025 when we reopen applications for next year's Teen Summer Volunteer Program.

We appreciate your understanding. For those who are not selected this year, we encourage you to explore other volunteer opportunities in the community this summer.
