Volunteering is an extremely rewarding experience. Our volunteers are
crucial in supporting Paoli Hospital’s mission to uphold the standard of
excellence in care, educational information, technology and community
Through the generous gift of time, talents and personal interests, our
volunteers supplement the work of staff members by offering many special
services so important to patients, their families, and hospital staff.
We strive to provide a “superior experience” to all we encounter.
While there are specific benefits to being a volunteer, the greatest
reward is being part of a team that helps deliver the best patient care
possible to those in need.
Adult Applicants must be at least 19 years of age. Please follow the
following steps to become a volunteer at Paoli Hospital:
Commit to a weekly shift of four hours with a minimum of a six
month stay. College students may apply for a summer program
using the same adult application.
Complete and submit the appropriate application packet to the
Volunteer Office either by mail or fax to the address or number
noted below. An appointment will be scheduled for you to
participate in a group informational/orientation meeting so that
you can make an informed decision about joining our program.
After this meeting, please call the Department of Volunteer
Services at 484.565.1099 to discuss opportunities available and
your particular interests.
When you are matched to a position, you will be directed by our
office to have a new QuantiFERON test (screening for
tuberculosis). You can complete this at your wellness center or
physician's office and submit a written confirmation to our
office or contact Occupational Health at 484.565.1293, which is
located at our Main Line Health Center at Exton
Square. During flu season September through May, all
volunteers are required to have a flu shot, as well.
Once you have completed your screenings, please contact the
Volunteer Office to arrange a start date.
