Volunteer at IU Health North

Volunteers are an important part of Indiana University Health North Hospital and help us achieve our mission of providing exceptional care. It is not necessary for you to have worked or volunteered in a healthcare setting before. You only need a passion to serve others and a commitment to helping IU Health North Hospital make each and every guest's visit exceptional.

Our Culture of ServiceSlice

Participating in the care of others requires a special commitment to providing impeccable service and creating an experience our guests will not forget. As an integral part of IU Health North Hospital, all volunteers must be aware of our culture of service and our passionate commitment to exceeding the expectations of those we serve. This commitment is strengthened through a set of core beliefs, our maxims, that we believe must be practiced and observed every day to allow us to leave a positive lasting impression: Show Kindness. Connect Fully. Take Ownership. Create Joy. Do More.

Our VolunteersSlice

Traditional Volunteers

Anyone 18 or older and not in school is considered a traditional volunteer. Traditional volunteers usually serve one three-hour shift per week, but some assignments have four-hour shifts. New volunteers must commit to at least a six-month assignment, although many of our volunteers have been dedicating their time to our patients for years.

Student Volunteers 

Student volunteers are age 16-18 and in high school or 18 and over and in college. Students under age 18 may only volunteer in nonclinical areas. Any student wanting to volunteer just during the summer must commit to working at least 72 total hours. Students can complete the 72-hour commitment serving three ways:

  • One three-hour shift per week over the summer and into the school year
  • Two shifts per week for twelve weeks
