Give BackOur Volunteer Program
  • Our Volunteer Program

    Donating your time to those in need could be one of your most fulfilling experiences. Our Volunteer Program at
    Mount Sinai St. Luke’s can help you find the best outlet for your unique abilities and interests.

    Why Volunteer?

    Volunteering is rewarding, helpful, and fun, especially if you give your time where it can really make a difference. At Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, we have opportunities for those who are interested in helping people. We are here to help make life better for our patients, our community, and you.

    St. Luke’s is among New York City’s best-kept secrets. We are a center of clinical excellence for cardiology, neurology, oncology, and much more. Plus, we are leaders in caring for the elderly, treating breast cancer, helping kids, and providing physical rehabilitation. Because we’ve got so much going on, our volunteers really feel a part of all the activity and love that’s here, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    How Can You Help?

    When you join our family, you can help in different ways that we promise will be personally fulfilling for you and a benefit to our patients and our staff. Our opportunities include joining the Helping Hearts and Hands Program: assisting patients and their families in the Emergency Department; organizing musical/theatrical entertainment; becoming one of our Visiting Ambassadors to in-patients; or an advocate for the victims of rape/domestic violence in our Crime Victims Treatment Center. You could also participate in the Lobby Host program to direct and assist patients and their families. You may help with projects in the volunteer office, or be a clerical assistant in one of our many departments. Some of our volunteers just pitch in wherever and whenever an opportunity presents itself. If you have special talents and are interested in volunteering, we want to hear from you.

    If you have a big heart and enjoy helping others, please call us at (212) 523-2188.
