Volunteering at Mount Sinai Queens

Mount Sinai Queens welcomes volunteers to help us make the hospital experience as comfortable as possible for our patients and their families. Our dedicated volunteers, including high school students, retirees, and those in between, serve in many capacities. Some work directly with patients on clinical or special care units and diagnostic departments, while others assist patients indirectly through administrative support and at special events. 

Hours vary depending on the duties and the age of the volunteers. Generally speaking, adults and college students are asked to commit at least six hours per week for at least six months. High school students are asked to commit to at least four hours per week for at least one semester. We welcome volunteers to give more of their time and stay on longer. 

All volunteers are supervised and receive orientation and necessary training to perform their duties. All are trained in infection control, safety and security, and privacy issues. Before being placed, volunteers must complete a background screening as well as toxicology and health exam. 

For more information about volunteering opportunities, please contact the Director of Volunteer Services at ana_m.rodriguez@mountsinai.org or call 718-808-7726 (email is preferred).
