Volunteering: The Time Of Your Life!

Volunteers are a vital part of our healthcare team here at Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Medical Center. Each year, they donate thousands of hours to the Medical Center, providing services that will benefit our patients and help make their stay more comfortable. We need your help not only to continue our current activities, but also to extend services to meet the changing needs of our new healthcare environment.

If you have time to spare and enjoy helping others, then volunteering is for you! Volunteerism offers something for everyone.

HMH JFK Medical Center's Volunteer Program welcomes men and women of all ages. Volunteers can be retired, employed, students, local residents and individuals from surrounding communities. These uncommon people have one common purpose - they are dedicated to helping others. Volunteers need no special training to get involved. Special talents and personal schedules are matched to the hospital's needs. Most volunteers donate one-time slot of four hours per week; however, additional hours are always welcome.
