Giving the gift of time
Volunteer services are vital to our mission of delivering patient-centered care and ensuring that every person who enters our doors has a positive experience.
Our 2,500 volunteers provide patients, hospital departments and staff with capable and dedicated service, contributing almost 287,000 hours annually.
Reasons to Volunteer

- Meet new people
Along with the many personal benefits, Northwestern Medicine volunteers also receive free annual flu vaccines, invitations to events and discounts at participating retailers.
