Northside Hospital



Our volunteers enhance the caring and compassionate care Northside Hospital is known for, and we welcome you to join our team! If you would like to meet new people, build valuable skills, and have access to free educational programs and hospital events, please consider applying today. Our opportunities vary from patient care roles throughout the hospital including our Emergency Department, at the front desk and family waiting areas, and in support of our professionals in Marketing, Human Resources, and in clinical departments.

Volunteer applicants should complete and submit an application, then call Volunteer Services at (727) 528-5959 for an interview. Please print and bring to your interview all related forms including the background check, photo release, and confidentiality forms. Those aged 15 – 17 should submit the application, complete and print the background check, photo release, and confidentiality forms, as well as the parental consent forms, and bring to their interview.

New Opportunity: Keep Calm and Smile on in our ER!

Do you have the ability to "keep calm and smile on"? If so, please consider sharing your beautiful smile and warm personality with us at Northside Hospital's Emergency Department.

Our ER reception volunteers greet patients, visitors, staff, and colleagues, serving as the "first impression ambassadors" of our hospital. Additionally, volunteers issue visitor ID badges, provide directions and information, answer and place telephone calls to ER triage and other areas, occasionally provide wheelchair transportation, and assist security as needed.

In just four hours a week, you can help us maintain an environment where visitors feel welcome and valued. Customer service skills a must. Bilingual in English and Spanish a definite plus! Volunteers receive full training, and once placed, receive a free meal for each shift they serve, free flu shots, and more!
