Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities at IU Health

Fulfilling volunteer opportunities are available at Indiana University Health hospitals around the state and even from the comfort of your home. Our facilities offer opportunities for adults, students and even pets to make a difference at pivotal time in someone’s life. Whether it is coloring with patients at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, delivering flowers to new moms at IU Health Arnett Hospital or cuddling babies in the NICU at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital, we provide unique opportunities that fit your interests.

Customer Advisory Group

At IU Health, we strive to improve patient experience and provide high quality services. Our Customer Advisory Group is made up of former patients and their family members or friends throughout Indiana. The volunteers give us valuable feedback on healthcare topics and their experiences with IU Health. This feedback guides our decisions about how we provide care, what services we provide and how we can improve the patient experience.

The Customer Advisory Group is conducted entirely through email so it is convenient for you. Two or three times a month, we send you a short survey to complete. Your responses allow us to develop plans to make your experiences at IU Health better.

Volunteering at an IU Health Location

Volunteer opportunities vary at each IU Health location and are managed by Volunteer Services employees locally. To find out more about opportunities available and how to apply, please visit the website of the hospital nearest you.


Application Process

After we receive your application, we will contact you to set up an interview. All volunteers must also pass background checks and attend volunteer orientation. Specific interview and approval processes are different at each IU Health facility. Contact the facility you would like to volunteer at or visit their websites to learn more.
