Working with us


Our volunteer program promotes community involvement and our volunteers make a significant contribution to our hospital.

Working in a variety of roles, some of our volunteer tasks include:

  • assisting visitors to find their way in our hospital

  • visiting patients on the wards

  • assembling clinical packs

  • participating in the Palliative Paws Program, if you have a pet that has been deemed suitable for the role

  • regularly visiting a socially isolated resident living in an aged care facility through the Community Visitors Scheme

  • assisting at the Friends of St John of God gift shop

  • providing companionship to patients who have been admitted to the hospital and have a diagnosis of dementia by supporting them with conversation and reassurance.

Benefits of becoming a volunteer

Being part of the volunteer program gives you the satisfaction of helping and caring for patients, and knowing that they appreciate your service.

Volunteers tend to develop lasting relationships during their service at the hospital.

We provide the opportunity for all volunteers to meet and socialise at functions throughout the year.

Attendance at a Hospital Orientation Day is compulsory. These days are held every six weeks on a Monday. Morning tea and lunch are provided.
