Are you someone who wants to make a positive impact on the lives of patients? Do you want to support the exceptional JPS team in making a difference in the community we serve? If so, you might be just the person JPS needs! At JPS Health Network, we recognize the positive impact volunteers make on our patients and team every day. We seek high-quality, compassionate individuals who are committed to serving others. Our volunteers are carefully screened, trained and placed within JPS where their skills and talents will shine.
Below is a sampling of the areas where JPS volunteers serve:
Patient Visitor Volunteer
These volunteers provide so much: a warm blanket, a listening ear, a glass of cool water, a magazine or book. Volunteers can read to our patients or help them with a puzzle to pass the time. Volunteer visitors give the gift of time: time to focus on the patient and to provide comfort with a smile. These volunteers will be rounding on various floors and units at our main campus in Fort Worth.
Unit Support Volunteer
These volunteers visit patients and assist with general office support for the unit, such as making copies, filing, restocking supplies, answering phones and call lights. Volunteers assist visitors and family members in locating patients and as a liaison between staff and families to communicate non-medical information.
Greeters and Navigators
“Can you help me?” If you’re customer service oriented, the answer is always a cheerful “Yes!” These outgoing volunteers greet and guide patients and their families within the hospital or work at the various entry points in the main hospital. A passion for people is a must for these volunteer positions.
These opportunities vary from general office duties, organizing, filing, data entry, inventory or even helping with bulletin boards. There are clerical jobs for every skill and experience level. This is a great way to support the important departments that make up JPS!
Become a JPS volunteer without leaving your neighborhood! Many of our clinics use volunteers to greet and check in patients, stock supplies and make reminder calls to patients with upcoming appointments. Volunteer service will be conveniently close to home.
We use volunteers in a variety of creative ways throughout the hospital system, from musicians, clowns, pet therapy and “Popper Teams” (Volunteers who pop and serve popcorn to our guests.) Let us know your interests and talents!
Note: All volunteer candidates complete a volunteer application, provide references, agree to a criminal background check, interview with volunteer services staff and attend a volunteer orientation. Decisions to accept a candidate are based on suitability, compatible goals, favorable interview, recommendations, clear tuberculosis screening and background check.
