The first step in becoming a Uniontown Hospital volunteer is to complete application & reference form and return by:
Uniontown Hospital Volunteer Services
500 W. Berkeley Street
Uniontown, PA 15401
Reference and Criminal Background Check
To assure the safety of our patients and visitors, the second step is a reference and criminal background check. All references will be mailed a questionnaire regarding the applicant and a criminal background check is conducted. Upon receipt of at least two positive references and a clear criminal record, you will then be invited to attend the next scheduled Volunteer Orientation. Orientation lasts approximately two hours and is held at Uniontown Hospital. Junior Volunteers must be accompanied by an adult.
Scheduling and Training
After completing the orientation process, and receiving TB test, ID Badge and uniform, you will be ready to start as a scheduled volunteer. Additional training will be provided by the unit/department in which you volunteer.
Please note that Uniontown Hospital does not accept volunteers for court mandated volunteer hours.
Volunteer opportunities abound at Uniontown Hospital. We offer a variety of volunteer experiences based on your personal interests and skills.
Patient and Visitor Experience
Put your people skills to work as you round the hospital with our Comfort Cart distributing complimentary writing supplies, cards, newspapers, magazines and puzzle books while you interact with patients and families within the hospital.
Visit with a newly admitted patient and their family to answer questions regarding the “How To’s” of operating the remote control, telephone and bed controls. You are adding that personal touch during a scary time.
Our Concierge/Patient Transport volunteers work directly with patients and our visitors, by assisting with wheelchair transportation to various locations and services within the hospital.
Being greeted by a friendly “Hello” can make a difference to a patient or their family. Our Greeters are at the Information Desk in the main lobby and in the Emergency Department waiting room as well as the registration area of both the hospital and the Outpatient Diagnostic Center.
Are you blessed with the ability to play a keyboard or piano? If so, come be part of our music program. Our Volunteers play music during the lunch hour from a keyboard in the chapel, located on the main floor of the hospital. It is a welcomed sound echoing through the main concourse.
Support our staff
Gain valuable work experience or share your existing clerical skills with one of the many departments within the hospital. Or interact with families and patients on a clinical unit while assisting the nursing staff.
Participate in one of the many fundraising activities that our Volunteers have throughout the year. Our ticket sales benefit various programs for the hospital.
