Our Culture of Service

As an integral part of IU Health North Hospital, all IU Health North volunteers must be aware of our culture of service and our passionate commitment to exceeding the expectations of those we serve. This commitment is only strengthened through a set of core beliefs, Our Maxims, that we believe must be practiced and observed each and every day to allow us to leave a positive lasting impression: Show Kindness.

Participating in the care of others requires a special commitment to provide impeccable service and create an experience for our guests that they will not forget.

Our Volunteers

Traditional Volunteer: Anyone over 18 years of age and not in school is considered to be a traditional volunteer.

Student Volunteers: High school and college students may volunteer at IU Health North Hospital. Volunteer opportunities for high school students are filled as positions become available. College students are eligible for any volunteer position a traditional volunteer may fill. All student volunteers must be at least 14 years of age and in high school.

Student volunteers must work 72 total hours. This can be done over three months (typically, the summer) if six hours can be completed per week. This is dependent upon the hospital’s volunteer openings and student availability. If 72 total hours cannot be completed within that three-month timeframe, we ask that after-school volunteer shifts begin prior to the school year ending in May/June or once school resumes in August, based on availability of student and hospital needs.
