Have you ever wished there was something that you could do to help others? If helping others and making a difference in your community sounds appealing, then you can become Lankenau Medical Center volunteer. That is the kind of person we are looking for… people like you!

Who are our volunteers and what motivates them? Collectively our volunteers have one common denominator. They are people who feel good about helping others. Annually over 500 people, age 14 and counting, come to Lankenau as volunteers. Our volunteers are students, parents, grandparents, working professionals and retirees from all walks of life. Our volunteers come during the day, after school, on weekends, whenever their schedule allows.

Volunteering brings special rewards

Volunteering means being part of a group of energetic men and women who make a significant difference in the health and well-being of the community. For some, volunteering provides an opportunity to interact with people and make new friends. For others it is a way to give back to the community. Still others find volunteering an excellent way to enhance skills and explore new careers. The greatest reward, however, is the sense of giving oneself to help others.

At Lankenau Medical Center we believe that each of our volunteers is special. Annually we host a recognition event to express our appreciation to our volunteers. Pins are awarded for hours of service and in the Main Corridor of the hospital, the Volunteer Recognition Plaque honors volunteers who have donated over 1000 hours during their years as a volunteer.
