Riverview Health | Volunteers

Riverview Health relies on the assistance of hundreds of volunteers each year, and new volunteers are always welcome. Volunteering is great way to foster community involvement while helping others. The volunteer program at Riverview Health has been in existence for nearly 60 years, and volunteers have always made a tremendous impact, giving of their time and talents.

Some of the many volunteer service areas include patient transport, guest services, the gift shop, Women's Boutique and openings at Riverview Health Westfield Hospital. Volunteers work in four-hour shifts in the morning or afternoon, at least one day per week. A one-day orientation and annual mandatory education session provides training and review on general hospital procedures.

Volunteer achievements are recognized during National Healthcare Volunteer Week and an annual holiday breakfast. Other benefits include complimentary meals during volunteer shifts and discounts in the Riverview Health Gift Shop, Riverview Health Women’s Boutique and Riverview Health Rehab & Fitness centers.

If you’re interested in volunteering at Riverview Health, please contact the manager of Volunteer Services at 317.776.7236. An in-person interview, background check and health screening are required prior to being a volunteer.

NOTE: Riverview Health does not use infant cuddlers.

How to Make a Face Mask

If you or your organization is interested in sewing face masks to donate to Riverview Health, please review the below information to ensure your homemade mask offers the most protection to the wearer.

  • For supplies, you will need tightly woven cotton fabric (Tip: Use a different pattern of fabric for the outside of the mask than on the inside to decrease the chance of users putting them on backwards).
