How Do I Get Involved? 

Many people imagine themselves becoming hospital volunteers, making a difference for patients and families. Too many never make the phone call that could change their lives because they’re not sure what will be expected of them, or they’re not sure if they have what it takes. At Jupiter Medical Center, it all starts with a friendly interview. Call the Auxiliary at (561) 263-4461, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. You can learn about opportunities that suit your skills and interests, and we can learn about you! For your convenience, you may download and bring the completed Volunteer Application and Background Consent Form with you to your interview. Every volunteer goes through orientation and receives training before beginning their new role. All volunteers are required to adhere to the Auxiliary dress code which consists of a teal polo shirt or teal long sleeve jacket for the women, and a teal polo shirt for the men. Shirts or jackets may be purchased in the Gift Shop.

Note: In keeping with hospital safety standards, a routine background check and tuberculosis screening is required.
