Volunteering at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center offers the opportunity for persons possessing various talents and skills to contribute their time, in order to improve the quality of services to our patients, family members, physicians and staff. In addition, the great satisfaction gained by the volunteers, makes the experience truly worthwhile.
Beginning with the interview process, volunteers, who are primarily residents of the Aventura community, are evaluated as to their special skills and talents. Whether you are retired, an executive homemaker, an accountant or nurse, your talents and abilities will be utilized to the fullest.
With various departments available within the hospital, there is surely a volunteer opportunity that will fit the needs of both the volunteer and the hospital. Some volunteer opportunities include patient comfort, dietary, triage, and administration. The program provides orientation and training provided by hospital staff professionals and/or veteran volunteers.
Our Summer Teen Programs are designed for teenagers 16 years of age and older, from June to August. Not only do they receive community service hours, but it provides the opportunity to understand the hospital process and responsibilities. The Teen Volunteer commitment requires 8 hours per week, with 4 hour shifts ranging from 8:00am - 12:00pm, 12:00pm - 4:00pm, and 4:00pm - 8:00pm. Once summer is over, positions for teens are available after school from 4:00pm - 8:00pm.
If you are motivated to give of yourself and want to give back to your community, we invite you to join the dedicated group of volunteers at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center.
